The pedestrian struck this morning is a 15-year-old female and she remains in critical condition at a Portland hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators determined that the girl ran eastbound across 82nd Avenue to catch a northbound bus. She appeared to be in a crosswalk, but crossed against the signal and was struck by a northbound silver 2003 Mercedes S430 four-door, driven by a 66-year-old male.

The driver remained at the scene and has cooperated with investigators. It does not appear that the driver was impaired by intoxicants.

No citations have been issued and the crash is still under investigation.
