LINN COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - The Sweet Home Police Department says a woman was hurt and a driver died Friday evening after a collision in a crosswalk on Main Street.

Police say the driver, 77-year-old Lon Salladay, was in a gray Chevrolet Avalanche and hit the woman while she was attempting to cross the street at 22nd Avenue.
