The pedestrian killed last night was identified as 70-year-old Valentine Khubeyeva. The driver has been identified as 67-year-old Charles McBride.

There are no further updates to this investigation.



The pedestrian hit last night on Southeast Powell Boulevard died late last night at a Portland hospital.

Investigators learned that the 70-year-old woman attempted to cross Powell Boulevard from South to North in the 13300 block when she was struck by an eastbound GMC Yukon driven by a 67-year-old man. There is no marked crosswalk at this location.

The driver stopped and remained at the scene. The driver was not impaired by drugs or alcohol and cooperated fully with the investigation.

Investigators believe darkness, dense fog and dark clothing worn by the woman were contributing factors to this crash. The driver's estimated speed was between 25-30 miles per hour.

No citations have been issued and upon completion of the investigation, it will be sent to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office.

Names will be released after 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
