PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A pedestrian was killed in Clackamas County early Thursday night, and the driver remained at the scene, authorities said.
Deputies with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said 68-year-old Sherry Lynn Kehoe-Medhaug or Oregon City was hit by a truck shortly before 6:30 p.m. on South End Road north of Highway 99E between Canby and Oregon City.
Kehoe-Medhaug died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
The driver of the truck stayed at the scene to help investigators. Officials think Kehoe-Medhaug, who lived nearby, may have been crossing South End Road to check a mailbox when she was hit. The road was wet and the driver showed no signs of impairment, according to deputies.
The crash closed South End Road between Hwy 99E and S. Rocky Bluff Lane for about two hours.
