KING CITY, Ore. — Sheriff’s deputies in Washington County say a 27-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed by a pickup in King City.

Witnesses told investigators the man ran across Highway 99W while northbound traffic had a green light. One driver slammed on the brakes, narrowly avoiding the man, but the pickup in the next travel lane was not so fortunate.

Peter Emery of Sherwood died at the scene Saturday night despite the efforts of bystanders who performed CPR.
