CLACKAMAS CO., Ore. (KOIN) — A 51-year-old man accused of driving into a construction zone, hitting 3 workers and killing 1 of them, made his first court appearance on Wednesday.

A construction worker was killed and 2 more hurt in a crash at a work site along SE 122nd in Happy Valley, May 23, 2017 (KOIN)

Fedsot Tsopko drove into the well-marked construction zone on SE 122nd Avenue Tuesday afternoon, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Two victims survived the crash, but 48-year-old Pablo Dominguez-Amezcua died as a result of his injuries.

Tsopko is facing charges of manslaughter and DUII, in addition to high-speed driving in a safety zone and school zone.
