There is absolutely no excuse for such painful assertions. It only causes deeper suffering.
I've really had with all those who comment without thinking of the pain you are inflicting upon others.
Please have some compassion and as my Mother always said, "If you have nothing good to say, say nothing".

His body was found in the median ??? The vehicle ... "with damage to the left-front headlight, the quarter panel, the driver-side mirror and a bug deflector."

That means he was walking in the MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY ???

Sumpin ain't right !

My condolences to the family of the victim. I hope they don't read comments on this thread.

Wow, I wondered what the ODOT was doing taking pictures and creating so much traffic on a holiday weekend. My prayers for the family regardless of the details.

You are right and yes they are. Thank you and another mother for your compassion. May none of you ever know the pain of loss of a young person and the hopes and dreams you had for them. The driver should step forward, and provide closer.

It's just plain nuts to deliberately walk on the highway. It is illegal for a reason.

i heard from someone that sat in traffic yesterday that he was hitchhiking on the left side of the highway and a semi's draft pulled him in the road and he got hit, but regardless, its still pretty stupid to be walking on a road like 77

Consider the meth comment reported. It was totally out of line and inconsiderate as well as some of the other posts.

Maybe the poor guy was just tired or sick and trying to get home the shortest way possible - maybe something happend to his vehicle - maybe he wasn't walking in the middle but wanted to cross the highway? How do you know? Judge not lest you be judged. My condolences to the family.

And as far as why the guy that him didn't stop... he or she probably realized that a guy was just killed, and is more concerned about him/herself than the person hit - their shock and fears of the consequences.
What will happen to me (and my family)? What will happen to my insurance? Etc.

I hope the person steps forward, but I'd be surprised. Although, it seems they have a good bit of information about the vehicle, so maybe the person will feel wo worried about getting caught that he/she will step forward rather than risk the harsher penalties that come from continuing to hide - and it would probably be easier to deal with than a lifetime of hidden guilt.

If you were the same person who made the meth comment - there was NO humor in that
And if inconsiderate comments about people killed at no fault of their own are your idea of humor... well, that's just scary!

Speculating in a discussion forum is never inappropriate. That is what discussion forums are for.

It could have been drugs, alcohol, illness. mental disease, or many others reasons. Until the ABJ provides more details it is open to guess from any participants here. To jump to the worse case scenario, while cruel, is still appropriate in a discussion forum.

Oh, look you go on a rant about the other person, and you do not know any details either. According to you these type of posts are inappropriate.

I could not agree with this more. It is ILLEGAL to be walking on the freeway for a reason. If you are hit by a car, it IS your fault.

You people are pathetic. An innocent, young, soon-to-be father was killed and all you people do is attack each other for their posts. How about showing some respect to friends and family of the victim who read this by not being so harsh with your assumptions and accusations. Nick was a good friend of mine, and regardless of the details, he was a great guy and was loved by so many people. You all would be lucky to know someone like him.

A man who was killed and someone made comments based on what? Nothing in the story suggests the man was on drugs. IMO, those who are innocent victims deserve some respect, especially the dead and their families.(If there is PROOF he was on drugs, that would be a slightly different matter.)

It is highly unlikely that the driver dead or is an innocent victim (there is no suggestion that the man jumped in front of a moving vehicle).

There's a big difference. People either get that or don't. If they do, no further explanation is needed. If they don't, no further explanation will help.
