A freeway ramp from eastbound Interstate 84 to northbound Interstate 205 was closed early Monday morning after a woman was killed on the highway.
Portland police officers discovered the woman's body at about 3 a.m. April 8. The victim's name has not been released.
According to police, at 3:05 a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a welfare check of an injured person on the ramp from eastbound I-84 to northbound I-205. Officers found the victim, who died from traumatic injuries. Police say she was seen lying on the road before she was struck by vehicles. It's unclear how she got there. Traffic investigators want to hear from anyone who saw a person matching that description on or near the freeway ramp around 3 a.m. April 8.
In addition, investigators believe a semi-truck and trailer was among the vehicles that struck the pedestrian as she was in the roadway. The semi did not stop, and the driver may not have been aware that he or she was involved. They're asking for the driver to call to police non-emergency 503-823-3333. Reference case No. 19-112727.
