Heart attack contributed to crash


A woman who died after her car crashed Tuesday, Feb. 5, had a cardiac event just before the accident.

Jan Wiles, 60, of Portland was driving south on Southeast 162nd Avenue approaching Division Street at 4:22 p.m. when she crossed oncoming traffic and struck a large sign pole, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, Portland Police spokesman. She died later that night at a Portland hospital.

"The Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and determined that she suffered a cardiac event prior to the crash," Simpson said.
