Lopez-Palafox said Sullivan had stumbled into the roadway in front of his vehicle.

The sheriff’s office said there was no indication Lopez-Palafox was driving under the influence, and deputies are still investigating.

Sullivan was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital following the crash.

The sheriff’s office said a gray-haired man who was with a woman handed Sullivan’s cell phone to medics and they may have some information on where the cell phone was located. Deputies are still looking for witnesses to the crash, or anyone who saw Sullivan walking along Old Salem Road before the crash.

They added that if you saw a pedestrian walking on Old Salem Road near Humpty’s Dump between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m., you should call the sheriff’s office at 541-967-3911.
