An 83 year old Waldport man, injured when a car hit him at the front entrance of Newport’s 1010 Medical Building last week, has died of his injuries.

Police say John Giles was walking to the building entrance when a car, going in high speed reverse, slammed him through the double doors, severely injuring him.

At about that same time, Edward Roesing, 79 of Tidewater, got into his car that had been parked directly across from the front entrance. Roesing started it up and began to pull out of his parking space but it suddenly went out of control. At high speed it bounced off a building column and then, still in reverse, went straight for the double door entry way to the building. It was at that very instant that Giles was just about to go through the first set of doors. The car’s rear end hit him from behind. Giles was catapulted through the second set of doors and landed in the visitors area mortally injured.

After talking with driver Roesing, they cited him for reckless driving and assault. Now with the death of Mr. Giles, the District Attorney will have a lot more to deal with.
