  • Case History

    The victim was struck by a train at 10777 SW Cascade Avenue. The train's conductor and engineer saw a man lying in the tracks around 9 p.m. on October 7, as they neared a wooden trestle between North Dakota Street and Tiedeman Avenue. When they sounded the horn, the man tried to get up, but fell back down on the tracks. The train hit him at 20 to 30 mph, breaking his legs, lacerating his abdomen, amputating his right arm, breaking his jaw and fracturing and lacerating his face. His blood alcohol content was .22 - almost three times the legal limit for driving.

    He is believed to be a transient passing through Tigard on his way to somewhere else.
