Third person dies from September crash in NE Portland

2 dead, 4 injured in NE Portland crash

PORTLAND, Ore. – A third person has died from a September crash on Northeast Lombard Street that took the lives of a young girl and a 42-year-old man, and left three others injured.

The third victim, 25-year-old Deangelo Washington, died Sunday at an area hospital from injuries suffered in the crash. The other two victims were 12-year-old Akeeylee Burton of Scappoose and 42-year-old Quilly T. Lucas of Fairview.

Multiple people were injured in the Sept. 18 crash involving a Toyota Camry and Ford F350 pickup. The Camry was heading west on Lombard when it crashed into the eastbound truck near 15th Avenue around 8:45 p.m.

Washington was the driver and Lucas was a passenger in the Camry. Burton was a passenger in the pickup.

Burton's family has set up a GoFundMe account to help with expenses

Three other people, all passengers in the truck, also suffered serious injuries in the crash. According to a GoFundMe page, Akaaylee's sister, Alyssa, who was three months pregnant at the time of the crash, suffered back injuries and spent two days at OHSU. Her unborn child was "given a clean bill of health." Alyssa's boyfriend and father of the baby, Richard, was also injured. Shari Grier, Alyssa and Akaalee's grandmother, is in the ICU at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with traumatic injuries.

Police say intoxication and high speed were factors in the crash. No arrests have been made and no citations have been issued.

Portland Fire and Rescue said several people were trapped in vehicles after the collision.

A dog was also critically injured in the crash. It is at DoveLewis Animal Hospital.

Gary Russ, who lives nearby, said the intersection is dangerous.

"People are flying on this," he said. "Especially at night you have people racing on it and going 70 mph-plus and there's no turn lane. You sit out trying to go westbound on to 15th. There's no place to pull over."
