DAVID F. ASHTON - Members of the Portland Police Major Crash Team begin their investigation into this deadly crash on Powell Boulevard.After dark on Saturday evening, October 30, a pedestrian apparently crossing S.E. Powell Boulevard, and evidently outside of any marked crosswalk, was struck by a sports utility vehicle at 29th Avenue. It was the second similar accident in that area in a month.

Central Precinct officers responded to the incident at 9:49 p.m. that evening, as did emergency medical first-responders.

When they arrived, officers called in the PPB Major Crash Team, after finding a badly injured adult male down in the street. The man was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

"The driver of the involved SUV did remain at the scene," a PPB official told THE BEE. "The crash is still under investigation." The identity of the victim has not yet been made public.
