Fatal Portland truck accident may have been caused by high speed

Speeding on Portland roads and highways is dangerous and often leads to injuries in a truck accident or other type of motor vehicle collision. Nevertheless, a truck driver is under the same duty of reasonable care that applies to all individuals who get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle in Oregon.

Car accidents in Portland often happen when we least expect them. Sometimes we may be driving along, listening to our favorite music, when another driver changes lanes unexpectedly or makes another erratic move on the road. This can end up causing a collision when we have to react to another driver's sudden actions.

Pedestrian accident: man killed crossing a Portland street

On Jan. 28 about 7 p.m., a 26-year-old man was killed in the 7000 block of Southeast Foster Road in Portland after he was struck by a car as he attempted to cross the street. Police reports suggest the man was not in a crosswalk at the time of the pedestrian accident, though few other details of the collision were immediately available. Rushed to a local hospital after the incident, the victim later died from his injuries.

Driving in the Pacific Northwest can be challenging much of the year. In the summer, the sun can cause temporary blindness for a driver, and the rain can wreak havoc on Portland roads when they become slick and wet. Accidents can occur, causing serious injury to those unlucky enough to be caught in the path of a car that has lost control.
