The Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division Major Crash team is continuing to investigate last night's crash involving a pedestrian and a vehicle in Southeast Portland.

The pedestrian, a 70-year-old male, died at the hospital of his injuries. His name will be released after his family has been notified.

The driver, 25-year-old Spencer Lynn Snow, stopped and remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Snow did not exhibit any signs of intoxication and consented to a breath test, which was .00 BAC.

Investigators learned that Snow was driving northbound on 82nd Avenue when he struck the victim, who crossed the street from the westside, not in a crosswalk. It is not known if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the pedestrian.

The investigation is continuing and no charges have been issued at this time.
