SISTERS, OR -- A Bend man was injured when he ran in front of a car on Highway 20 in Sisters, early Friday morning. Deschutes County deputies were dispatched to milepost 6, just before 5 a.m. 

 

Investigators say 28-year-old Tharon Crofoot had been hitchhiking along the westbound shoulder of the highway. But, due to the cold weather, he decided to head back to Bend. Upon seeing eastbound cars, he ran across the highway to get the driver's attention and get a ride. As he ran across the road, a Honda Accord struck Crofoot.

 

The driver immediately turned around and helped get the man out of the roadway. Sisters Fire medics transported Crofoot to St. Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries. 

 

DCSO says Crofoot may have been under the influence at the time of the accident.  No citations have been issued.
