Update 4:20pm

Lincoln City Police are investigating a fatal vehicle vs pedestrian crash, which occurred at approximately 10am Tuesday.

Richard V. Swanson, age 42, of Seattle, was walking south along the south bound shoulder of Hwy 101 near the south city limits of Lincoln City. Mr. Swanson was struck from behind by a 1995 Nissan pickup operated by Scott Van Hiatt, age 52, of Neskowin. Mr. Hiatt remained at the scene and has been cooperating with the investigation.

Medics from Pacific West Ambulance transported Mr. Swanson to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital, where Mr. Swanson was declared deceased.

Mr. Swanson was apparently trekking from Seattle with a goal of reaching Sao Paulo, Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. Websites associated with Mr. Swanson’s trek (http://breakawaybrazil.com/), indicate he was intending to dribble a soccer futbol along his route. There is no indication that he was dribbling the futbol at the time of this crash.

The Lincoln County Major Crash Team is assisting with the continuing investigation. The Major Crash Team includes members from Lincoln City PD, Newport PD, Lincoln County SO, Toledo PD, Oregon State Police, and the Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office. Investigation as to the cause of the crash is continuing.
