Michael Caldwell was crossing 19th Avenue at Birch Street around 6:20 p.m. when the crash occurred, Forest Grove Police Dept. said.

One car had already stopped at the crosswalk, but a 79-year-old driver in the next lane reportedly didn’t see Caldwell and kept driving.

The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with police. Alcohol was not suspected to be a factor in the crash, according to police.

The street, also known as State Hwy 8, was closed for over 2 hours.
