Visibility a factor in pedestrian death along Hwy 30


Pedestrian was wearing all black and in the traffic lane, authorities said


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A pedestrian was hit and killed early Saturday morning along Highway 30 and 63rd Avenue, and investigators said visibility may have been a factor.

Shortly before 5 a.m., police were called about a pedestrian walking in the traffic lane on Highway 30. The crash happened south of that first report and investigators believe both calls involved the same person.

On September 20, the victim was identified as 34-year-old Samuel G. Hambrick. Authorities believe he was wearing all black when tragedy struck.

The driver of the vehicle — whose name has not yet been released — stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Officials said the driver did not appear impaired nor was he driving recklessly.
