PORTLAND, Ore. (AP/KOIN) — A pedestrian who was hit while crossing a Southeast Portland street Friday has died of his injuries.

A spokeswoman at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital says 25-year-old Joseph Randall Stone died late Saturday.

Portland police say Stone was struck by an SUV Friday morning while crossing at a marked crosswalk. This happened just before 9 a.m. in the 15600 block of SE Division Street, according to KOIN.com’s reporting. Stone was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The Oregonian reported Sunday that the man’s family issued a statement asking the city to place flashing lights at the intersection where he was hit.
