June 29, 2013 17:25The person killed in last night's traffic crash has been identified as 33-year-old Michael Axtman Dominguez. Dominguez was back seat passenger in a 2008 Honda Civic driven by 34-year-old Jason Rodriguez.
Traffic investigators determined that a 2012 Smart Car, driven by 51-year-old Brian Setzler, was traveling westbound on Madison Street and collided with the Honda, which was northbound on 10th Avenue, after running a stop sign. The collision caused the Honda to strike a large utility pole on the northwest corner of the intersection, which caused extensive damage to the car.
Rodriguez and the front passenger were transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries. Dominguez died at the scene. All three were wearing seat belts.
Setzler and the passenger in the Smart Car were not injured.
Neither driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs and the case remains under investigation.
This was Portland's 18th traffic fatality of 2013.
