News Release
Update: Traffic #ALERT: MCT Activation - 04/09/19

The investigation is continuing into this afternoon's fatal traffic crash. A van driving on Northeast Marine Drive veered off the road, crashed and then rolled underneath the Glenn Jackson Bridge. The driver, an adult male, died in the single vehicle crash.

Marine Drive is back open to vehicular traffic. If anyone has information relating to this crash, they are asked to call the Traffic Division at 503-823-2103 or Traffic Investigator Officer Garrett Dow at 503-823-5070.

No other updates will be released until at least tomorrow.

The Portland Police Traffic Division is committed to providing enforcement and raising awareness regarding traffic safety for vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. Each year, traffic officers respond to preventable collisions. These collisions can deeply impact those involved, their families and loved ones. Traffic officers' number one priority is to address behaviors of all road users that might lead to a collision, including speed, impairment, distraction, and disobeying signals.

The Portland Police Bureau works closely with our partners in government and the community to create safer streets and work toward reducing, and eventually eliminating, traffic fatalities as part of Vision Zero.
