###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

Traffic officers are continuing to investigate this morning's fatal crash on Southeast Division Street. The road was reopened after several hours of closure.

Investigators have learned that an 80-year-old man and a 78-year-old woman, husband and wife, were crossing Southeast Division Street, from North to South in an unmarked crosswalk. A 2014 GMC pick-up truck, driven by a 38-year-old male, was making a left (eastbound) turn from 84th Avenue onto Division Street when he struck both pedestrians near the center turn lane.

The 78-year-old woman died at the scene and the 80-year-old man was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life threatening injuries.

The driver remained at the scene and cooperated fully with the investigation. Impairment by drugs or alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in this crash.

The names of those involved will not be released until sometime on Saturday.

This is the second traffic-related fatality of 2014.

Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact Officer Erik Koppang at (503) 823-2216 or erik.koppang@portlandoregon.gov.
