Woman struck by car in SE Portland dies from injuries

Three people hurt in separate accidents Tuesday evening


One of two people struck by a car Tuesday evening in Southeast Portland died Wednesday from her injuries.

Portland police said 71-year-old Ksenia Aleksandrova was seriously injured in the accident and died at a local hospital where she was being treated.

Aleksandrova was one of three pedestrians crossing streets in Southeast Portland who were struck by cars and hospitalized in separate incidents Tuesday evening.

Her companion, 70-year-old Pavel Krivolenkov, was in serious condition with traumatic injuries.

According to police, Aleksandrova and Krivolenkov were in a crosswalk when they were struck at about 8:22 p.m. in the 10800 block of Southeast Washington Street.

The crash occurred during a heavy downpour and investigators determined that the driver was not impaired by drugs or alcohol and was not speeding, police say.

No citations have been issued and the investigation continues. The driver, 41-year-old Kimberly Dennis, remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

Earlier in the evening, a 16-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition after being hit by a car on Southeast 82nd Avenue near Raymond Court.

Police responded to the report of the accident at 6:47 p.m. on Nov. 20.

Traffic investigators determined that the boy, along with another young man who fled the scene, ran eastbound across 82nd Avenue from the Fred Meyer store. A northbound vehicle struck the boy and immediately stopped and rendered medical aid to him.

The driver cooperated with investigators and it does not appear that drugs, alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.

No citations were immediately issued.
