Portland police said the driver of a semi tractor trailer hit the victim’s Jeep, causing it to roll over an embankment.

The semi then hit an Audi Q7 at a slower speed and neither driver was injured.

Before officers were able to arrive at the scene, a witness was trying CPR on the Jeep’s driver, 62-year-old Steven Ray Tomlinson but their attempts were unsuccessful.

The crash is still under investigation but will go to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for review.
