PORTLAND – A woman who was struck by an SUV while walking across the street on Southeast Powell Boulevard Friday night has died.

A 70-year-old woman was trying to cross Southeast Powell Boulevard in the 13300 block when she was hit by a GMC Yukon driven by a 67-year-old man, investigators said.

The driver was traveling around 30 miles per hour. He was not impaired by drugs or alcohol, investigators said. He remained at the scene after the crash.

According to investigators, darkness, dense fog and the woman’s dark clothing were factors in the crash.

The woman died late Friday night at an area hospital.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said the names of the victim and driver would be released Saturday afternoon.
