Pedestrian Struck Twice and Killed on Highway 42

Friday evening a pedestrian was killed after being struck by a vehicle on Highway 42.

James Edward Taylor Jr., 38, of Roseburg, was walking across Highway 42 when he was hit by a 2000 Chevrolet Camaro and a 2000 Toyota RAV4.

Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing dark clothing at the time of the collision.

Both drivers are cooperating with investigators.

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.
