Victim of fatal crash identified as Astoria resident

Update:

The victim of a fatal crash that occurred last night, 11/29/2022, was identified during an autopsy at the Oregon State Medical Examiners Office earlier today.  He is 35 year old Luis Miguel Jimenez of Astoria.  Jimenez’s death was the result of blunt force trauma to the head.   The scene investigation and post mortem examination indicates that Jimenez had fallen, presumably from his bike on the sidewalk, partially into the roadway where he was struck by a passing vehicle.  Investigators have identified a Semi-tractor trailer truck and operator that was passing through the area just prior to Astoria Police Department being notified of the crash.  At this time, investigators believe the Semi trailer struck Jimenez, unbeknownst to the vehicle operator. These details remain under investigation and the company and operator are cooperating with the investigation.   If anyone witnessed or has information regarding the crash they are asked to contact Detective A.J. Duryea at 503-325-4411 or by email at aduryea@astoria.or.us
