Wife killed, husband injured crossing SE Division
A 78-year-old woman was killed and her 80-year-old husband was hospitalized after being hit by a truck while crossing Southeast Division Street on Friday morning.
The deceased woman has been identified as Yan Huang. Her husband, who is continuing to recover from injuries, has been identified Zhi Hu.
The driver, Jarred Holt, 38, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. Impairment by drugs or alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in this crash. There has not been an arrest or any citations issued. Once the investigation is complete it will be forwarded to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review.
There is no marked crosswalk where the couple was crossing.
This is the second traffic-related fatality of 2014.
According to police, the couple was crossing Division from north to south. A 2014 GMC pick-up truck making a left, eastbound turn from 84th Avenue onto Division struck near the center turn lane.
The woman died at the scene and the man was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life threatening injuries.
Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact Officer Erik Koppang at (503) 823-2216 or email@example.com.
