Pedestrian Killed, Driver Injured in Eugene on Interstate 5

Friday evening a man was walking across Interstate 5 near the 30th Avenue exit when he was struck and killed by a vehicle.

The man was attempting to cross the southbound lanes of I-5 when he was hit.

The pedestrian caused enough damage to the vehicle that the driver was taken to the hospital. The pedestrian died at the scene.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the pedestrian and wish the driver 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.
