The pedestrian who was killed after being struck by a car on October 1st is identified as Ryan J. Dickenson, 34. His family has been notified of his death. The vehicle involved is an Infiniti G35 2-door.

The investigation is ongoing. Traffic investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash. No criminal charges or citations have been issued against the driver of the Infiniti, but the case is still open pending further investigation. More analysis of the evidence is being done.

This is the 51st fatal crash of 2021 in Portland and the 56th Major Crash Team callout. Because the MCT was investigating another fatal crash that evening, Central Precinct officers had to hold the scene for more than four hours before crash investigators could respond to begin their work.



The pedestrian struck in this crash later died at the hospital. Their identity will be released after family has been notified.
