Kyle Peterson was the driver and single occupant of a vehicle involved in a crash on SE Stark St. near SE 35th St. in Troutdale, OR.
Troutdale Police initially responded to the accident and made contact with the driver of the vehicle Kyle Peterson. As the officer talked with Mr. Peterson, he turned and walked away from the officer and vehicle into a heavily wooded area southeast of the scene.
