Report of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian at 1497 NE Yaquina Heights Drive. Vehicle ran over a man’s leg. Vehicle then left the scene, according to reports. Emergency responders are enroute.
Paramedics say it appears the 54 year old male was runover…lower part of his body. Definite leg injuries.
Vehicle described as an older Ford pickup with a canopy. There is some speculation that the drive didn’t realize he had injured anyone. Roadway is pretty narrow up there, with shoulders that drop off almost from the edge of the pavement. And if the driver was pulling out of a driveway looking the other way for oncoming traffic he may not have seen the pedestrian.
