PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman was struck and killed by a car on the I-5 early Wednesday morning.
Portland Police said Madison V. Ries was found laying in the southbound lanes near the NE Skidmore Street overpass with fatal injuries. A 911 caller reported the crash but said the driver of the car that hit her was no longer on scene.
Ms. Ries was 25.
Investigators now believe a white or gray pick-up was involved but may have no damage other than minor front-end or undercarriage damage.
This is the 45th fatal crash in the city of Portland in 2017.
