PORTLAND - A woman crossing the street was struck and killed by a vehicle in the 7800 block of Northeast Glisan Street about 6 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Heather Jean Fitzsimmons, 29, was in the crosswalk. She started across the street after a car stopped to let her cross. A second vehicle going the same direction in a second lane did not stop and struck the woman, killing her instantly.

The driver, 24, remained at the scene, and police say she showed no signs of impairment. Police have not yet determined what speed her Chevy Blazer was traveling. The driver was not cited or arrested.

Glisan was closed in both directions for several hours as investigators processed the crash scene.
