Eugene, Ore. – At about 2:18 a.m. on March 20, Eugene Police officers were dispatched to W. 6th Avenue and Blair Street for a crash.
The investigation showed two vehicles were driving westbound on W. 6th Avenue approaching Blair Street. One vehicle turned from a far left lane in front of the vehicle driving in the far right lane, then the vehicle spun and went across a sidewalk at the northwest corner of the intersection, where it struck a pedestrian waiting to cross Blair Street.
The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
