Police release details in fatal Highway 217 crash
Vicky Stohl, of Lake Oswego, killed while crossing Highway 217 at Kruse Way
A Lake Oswego woman who was killed while crossing Highway 217 on Monday was wearing headphones and walked against a pedestrian crosswalk signal, according to Tigard Police.
Vicky Stroh, 41, of Lake Oswego, was attempting to cross the busy highway in a crosswalk near the intersection of Highway 217 and Kruse Way at about 5:30 a.m., Monday, Feb. 8.
Although Stroh was in the crosswalk at the time of the crash, Tigard Police said that she was crossing without heed to the pedestrian crosswalk signal. Stroh may have been distracted, police said, because she was wearing headphones at the time.
Stroh, a mother of two, was struck by a pickup truck traveling southbound on Highway 217. The driver of the pickup stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, according to Tigard Police spokesman Jim Wolf.
No citations have been issued, but the investigation remains active.
The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team is assisting with the investigation.
