Man who walked across busy Pacific Highway struck by car, police say
A Tigard man is in the hospital after he was struck by a car while crossing Pacific Highway on Tuesday morning.
According to the Tigard Police Department, Jonathan Allen, 32, was crossing Pacific Highway against traffic at about 6:05 a.m., Tuesday, June 28, when he was struck by a passing vehicle near the corner of Dartmouth Avenue and Pacific Highway.
Allen was taken to Oregon Health & Science University hospital with life-threatening injuries, Wolf said.
The Washington County Crash Analysis Response Team is investigated and determined that Allen was moving with disregard to traffic moving with a green light, according to Jim Wolf, a spokesman for the Tigard Police Department. In doing so, Allen was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound on Pacific Highway.
The driver of the vehicle, who was not identified, stopped and remained at the scene.
The crash snarled the morning commute for hours. The Pacific Highway exit of northbound Highway 217 was closed for two hours and Pacific Highway was diverted around Southwest Dartmouth Street.
