Police identify MAX victim

Police have identified the pedestrian killed by a XAX train Friday evening as Joseph Nathan Hill, 71.

Miller was struck by a MAX train near 160th Avenue and East Burnside Street. According to police, Miller, a resident of the neighborhood was out for a walk. When he got to the MAX tracks, he stepped out onto the tracks and looked east, then was struck from behind by an eastbound train.

It is not known if Hill was impaired at the time of the incident.

The TriMet MAX Operator was not impaired and has cooperated with the investigation, police say.
