PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Portland man died Wednesday in a crash involving two speeding cars on North Basin Street on Swan Island.
The two were side-by-side northbound about 5:30 a.m. when a southbound semi approached. One driver swerved to avoid the truck, the other did not and struck the vehicle, police said.
The driver in the collision, 47-year-old Kyle Andrew Cline, died at the scene. The truck driver was not injured.
The other speeding driver did not stop and left the scene. Police contacted and interviewed that driver, and ultimately determined that person was not involved in the crash.
Speed and wet roads contributed to the crash, police said.
