PORTLAND --  The pedestrian who was struck by two vehicles as he was crossing a Southeast Portland street Sunday evening has been identified, police said.

Police were called just after 7 p.m. to the report of a man hit by a vehicle near Southeast 82nd Avenue and Raymond Street.

Officers and medical responders at the scene found Frank Grammer, 61, suffering traumatic injuries, said Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson. Grammer was taken to a Portland hospital, where he was listed in critical condition Monday.

Investigators said Grammer was in dark clothing and stepped into the southbound lane of 82nd Avenue, not in a crosswalk. He was struck by a Mazda Protege driven by Brian Keith Monsrud, 53, thrown over that vehicle and struck by a 2005 VW Passat driven by a 64-year-old, Simpson said.

Both drivers remained at the scene and cooperated with police. Monsrud was cited for DUII and reckless driving. The second driver was not cited.

The collision remains under investigation and will be forwarded to the district attorney's office when complete.
