Pedestrian Dies Trying to Cross I-84 near The Dalles

Friday afternoon a woman died as she tried to walk across I-84 near The Dalles and was struck by a car.

An eastbound 2011 Honda Civic driven by Lynoure Won, 56, of John Day, slammed into the pedestrian.

The pedestrian was identified as Eunice Spino, 47, of The Dalles, and evidence suggests she may have been intoxicated.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Eunice Spino.

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.
