Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office deputies were responding to a non-injury crash in the eastbound lanes of I-84 near Rooster Rock State Park Tuesday morning, when they were notified of a second crash at the same location.
Upon arriving at the scene, deputies found a semi-truck had collided with an SUV, and the person associated with the SUV was deceased.
During an initial phase of the investigation, another semi-truck crashed into the scene.
Sheriff’s deputies activated the East County Vehicular Crimes Team (VCT), who responded to perform a crash investigation.
Preliminary findings suggest the person associated with the SUV was standing outside their vehicle when a semi-truck collided with them and the SUV.
VCT also noted that weather conditions may have been a contributing factor, as most surfaces were coated in a thin layer of ice.
Both semi-truck drivers are uninjured and are cooperating with the investigation.
