EUGENE, Ore. – After a car struck a man in a motorized wheel chair last year, the city of Eugene is taking a close look at the safety of crossing 30th Avenue. Traffic engineers held a meeting to get public input Thursday night.
The victim of the crash, Robert Six, was there to speak out on what he believes needs to be done. Six has been in a hospital bed for five months and he’s just now back in his wheel chair. He had a broken back, shattered leg and other injuries included bleeding in the brain.
Six is much better but financially burdened and still seeking compensation. He hired an attorney who is looking into suing the city for not doing something about this dangerous intersection sooner. The December crash is still under investigation.
