PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A 63-year-old woman critically injured after a two-car crash in Southeast Portland died Tuesday evening at a Portland hospital.

The crash happened just after 4 p.m. on Tuesday at SE 80th and Ash Street, police said, and they suspect a speeding driver may be a factor.

Investigators said they later learned that 22-year-old Domonique Latrice Williams was driving a 1992 Chevy Tahoe westbound on Ash Street approaching 80th Avenue when he failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the southbound 2007 Honda Civic driven by the 63-year-old woman, who was not identified, with the right-of-way.

Williams was not impaired and remained at the scene, police said.

The case remains under investigation and, once complete, will be presented to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for review, authorities said.
