###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

On November 17, 2020, at approximately 6:51 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the 16000 block of Southeast Stark Street on reports of a collision where a vehicle struck a pedestrian. As officers arrived on scene they learned the vehicle who struck the pedestrian fled the scene westbound on Southeast Stark Street. Medical personnel arrived on scene and quickly determined the pedestrian's injuries were life threatening. The pedestrian was transported to a nearby hospital and immediately taken into surgery.

The Portland Police Bureau's Traffic Division's Major Crash Team (MCT) responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. The vehicle, described as a silver or light gray sedan with no rear license plates, was traveling westbound in the left of two westbound lanes of travel on Southeast Stark Street. Witnesses described the vehicle traveling with its headlights off and at a high rate of speed. The pedestrian entered the crosswalk and crossed from the north side of the road walking to the south. Prior to crossing in the crosswalk, the pedestrian activated the rapid flashing beacons, which alerts oncoming motorists of a pedestrian crossing or intending to cross the street. The pedestrian was most likely hit after he crossed the first lane of westbound travel, and was into the second lane of westbound travel.

The pedestrian is identified as 27-year-old Daniel Lopez-Herrera. Mr. Lopez-Herrera is still in critical condition and receiving lifesaving care at the hospital.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time. If anyone has information about this crash, please contact Officer Chris Johnson at 503-823-2213 or Chris.Johnson@portlandoregon.gov

This is the 44th Major Crash Team activation for 2020.
