The crash happened near Cottage Grove. Oregon State Police officers responded to the scene shortly after 3 p.m. on London Road just north of Cottage Grove Lake. That’s where investigators say a woman was standing on the side of the road when a car ran off the road and hit her.
“She was basically on the side of the road here. Looks like she was maybe putting her garbage can out when the suspect vehicle veered off the side of the road and basically ran her over,” said Lt. Rob Edwards, Oregon State Police.
Police say the driver kept going, but officers were able to track down and arrest that person.
At this point, investigators say alcohol was not a factor in the deadly crash.
The names of the suspect or the victim have not been released.
