Victim identified in sheriff, pedestrian accident
Police have identified the victim in a sheriff-involved accident April 29 in Wood Village.
Stephen Robert Heberliing, 68, was struck by a Multnomah County Sheriff deputy patrol car while crossing Northeast Sandy Boulevard near 238th Avenue about 4 a.m. Heberliing was not in a marked crosswalk. Portland Sgt. Pete Simpson said Heberliing had a Colorado driver's license, but police believe he was a transient.
Heberliing suffered life-threatening injuries, to which he later succumbed. It's unknown how the crash occurred.
The name of the deputy, who has worked with the sheriff's office for six years, has not been released. He has been placed on administrative leave while the investigation is conducted. Portland Police Bureau's Major Crash Team is conducting the investigation. Once the investigation is complete, it will be reviewed by the Multnomah County District Attorneys Office.
