Portland Police investigating two fatal traffic crashes
Portland Police are investigating two fatal traffic crashes.
The most recent investigation began in the afternoon of Monday, Sept. 28, when a 35-year-old man driving a stolen motorcycle was killed when he hit the passenger side of a car at a Northeast Portland intersection.
Nathaniel Kimo Entriken died at the scene of the crash at Northeast Ainsworth and Grand Avenue. By the time first responders arrived, Entriken had already died, police said.
Investigators determined speed was a factor in the crash. Although officials said the motorcycle was stolen, it is not immediately clear when it was stolen or by whom.
The driver of the car involved in the cash stayed at the crash scene and cooperated with the investigation. No arrests were immediately made in relation to the crash.
Before that, a 52-year-old man died in a hospital two days after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Northeast Portland's Hazelwood neighborhood.
Timothy John Ames was hit by a vehicle at about 10 p.m. on Sept. 24 in the 200 block of Northeast 139th Avenue, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
The driver who hit Ames left the scene. Ames was taken to a hospital with severe injuries and died on Sept. 26.
Ames' death marks the 37th traffic fatality in Portland in 2020.
