A recent accident in Oregon eventually lead to the arrest of a man reportedly driving a truck involved in the incident. When authorities arrived on the scene, they found the victim of the pedestrian accident and a witness waiting to give statements. According to reports, the pedestrian was in a crosswalk, legally crossing on a green walk signal. At the same time, however, a moving truck was apparently making a turn onto the street the pedestrian was crossing.
The victim and the witness both reported that the truck also had a green light to make the turn. After apparently getting impatient waiting for the pedestrian to cross the street, the driver of the truck honked his horn. The pedestrian admitted to yelling at the driver in anger. The driver, however, allegedly proceeded to hit the pedestrian and then leave the scene. Though the pedestrian was bloody when authorities arrived, he declined medical treatment.
