A pedestrian struck by a food truck along Old Salem Road in Millersburg on Tuesday morning has died of his injuries, according to a news release from the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.
Alexander Sullivan was 27.
The Albany resident was struck at about 9:45 a.m. Tuesday as he was walking southbound near Humpty’s Dump.
The Linn County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the case and deputies are looking for any witnesses to the crash or those who saw Sullivan walking along Old Salem Road prior to the incident, between 9:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m.
