A fatal motor vehicle vs pedestrian crash occurred on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at approximately 7:18 PM on Crater Lake Parkway north of the intersection of Pacific Terrace.

When the officers arrived on scene and found a woman with life threatening injuries. Medical attention was administered by law enforcement personnel and an off-duty paramedic. 

The woman succumbed to her injuries and detectives from the Klamath Falls Police Department responded to investigate the incident.

The woman was identified as 58 year old, Andrea Louise Campos.

Investigators determined, Campos was walking northbound on the sidewalk on Crater Lake Parkway just prior to the crash. Campos had crossed the street in a dark section of the roadway between intersections and where there were no crosswalks. Campos walked in front of a motor vehicle traveling southbound on Crater Lake Parkway and causing the collision. 

The 25-year-old male driver remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation. 

The preliminary findings do not indicate the driver of any criminal liability, and alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor regarding the pedestrian. 

During the initial part of the investigation, Crater Lake Parkway was closed for several hours between the intersections of Main Street, and Esplanade. Members from the Klamath Falls Police Department, Klamath County Sheriff’s Office and Oregon State Police responded to the call.
