Deputies: Pedestrian hit, killed by driver in Aloha
ALOHA, Ore. – A driver hit and killed a 69-year-old woman walking on SW Farmington at around 7:30 Wednesday morning, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) said.
WCSO said 69-year-old Victoria Garcia-Flores was crossing SW Farmington near SW 195th when she was hit.
Bystanders performed CPR, but she died at the scene.
"A Ford Escape struck a female pedestrian crossing the street," Jeff Talbot, the Public Information Officer with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, said.
Elias Alfaro Izquierdo, 32, was behind the wheel of the Ford. He is cooperating with investigators.
We're told Garcia-Flores was on her way to go babysit for some family friends.
"Initial indications do not point to alcohol or speed being a factor, but again, I caution, you this is still very early on," Talbot said.
Talbot also said, at this point, it doesn't seem like distracted driving had anything to do with it, but he's using the opportunity to get an important message out.
“We ask pedestrians to wear especially in darker hours, to wear clothing that's visible not dark clothing,” Talbot said. “Drivers they need to slow down, and not be distracted while driving and use caution.”
Farmington Road was closed between SW 198th Avenue and SW 192nd Avenue for several hours.
