The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says Nathaniel Franciosi was walking on the sidewalk along Pacific Highway near the intersection of SW Fischer Road when two cars crashed and one came to rest on the sidewalk, hitting the man. He was rushed to the hospital for treatment of his injuries, but he succumbed to them hours later.

One of the two drivers involved in the crash, a 71-year-old man, was also seriously injured. The other driver, a 58-year-old woman, was not seriously injured and investigators believe she had been drinking alcohol.

The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
