PORTLAND, Ore. -- A woman walking in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near the Skidmore overpass was hit and killed by a driver who fled the scene early Wednesday morning, according to Portland police.
Emergency crews were dispatched about 1:15 a.m. to a report of a pedestrian struck. They found 25-year-old Madison V. Ries dead of catastrophic injuries.
