Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into this evening’s fatal pedestrian crash on I -84 near Cascade Locks.

On Nov. 30 at about 7 p.m., OSP and emergency personnel responded to a crash on Interstate 84 westbound near milepost 51 involving two motor vehicles that collided with a pedestrian.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a Subaru passenger car, operated by Meghan Moorhead, age 32, from Portland, was westbound in the right lane. A pedestrian, identified as Kevin Burrows-Ellenberg, age 32, from Boise, Idaho, for unknown reasons walked into the path of the Subaru from the westbound shoulder, according to an OSP press release.

Burrows-Ellenberg came to rest in the left lane and into the path of a Toyota 4 Runner, operated by Solomon Jacobsen, age 46, from Rufus.

Burrows-Ellenburg was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency personnel. Both Moorhead and Jacobsen stopped at the scene and are cooperating with investigators.
