PORTLAND -- A 25-year-old man hit by an SUV in a marked crosswalk in Southeast Portland Friday died late Saturday at the hospital.

Oregon Health & Science University spokeswoman Kathleen Gorman said Joseph Randall Stone died late Saturday night.

Stone was struck by a silver Dodge SUV while he was in the crosswalk at Southeast Division Street and 156th Avenue, police said.

Officers at the scene found Stone suffering from traumatic injuries, said Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson. He was taken to a nearby hospital.

The 49-year-old driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, Simpson said.

Police reported that neither the driver or the person struck was impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Stone's family released the following one-sentence statement after hearing news of his death.

"The family's deepest wish is that the city would place flashing lights at the crosswalk where he was hit."
