KEIZER, Ore. (KOIN) — A 20-year-old man died on July 4 from injuries sustained in car crash, according to the Keizer Police Department.
On July 1, Anthony Jon Ernest stepped away from a sidewalk on N River Road and NE Chemawa Road and into the path of a car. Police say it’s unclear if Ernest saw the oncoming car or if he was distracted.
The driver stopped immediately and cooperated with the investigation. A witness told police the driver had a green light for that intersection. He did not show signs of impairment and speeding doesn’t appear to be a factor.
