Pedestrian Struck by Vehicle on I-84 near Cascade Locks

A pedestrian was seriously injured when vehicle struck them on I-84 seven miles east of Cascade Locks.

Joshua W. Evey, 39, of Gladstone was transported to OHSU area hospital where he is expected to recover.

The pedestrian was a volunteer responder called to help rescue an injured hiker at Munra Point.  Evey was driving down I-84 when cargo in the bed of his truck blew out.  He pulled over to pick up the item and was struck by a silver 2007 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Lane D. Joyner, 40, of Portland.

Joyner was not injured and is cooperating with investigators.

We wish Joshua W. Evey a full and speedy recovery.

In a pedestrian v. car accident, the pedestrian is often seriously injured. In cases where the driver is at fault, the driver’s auto insurance will ultimately compensate the injury victim.

Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP through your own auto insurance) still applies in this type of case, so use your own auto insurance to pay medical bills until you settle your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance.

If you don’t have an auto insurance policy, then your health insurance will cover your medical bills. If you don’t have auto or health insurance, the at-fault driver’s PIP should cover your medical bills.

If you are interested in discussing whether you might have a pedestrian accident, call a Portland pedestrian accident attorney for help and a free consultation.
