PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Authorities have identified a woman who was found dead after a Southeast Portland crash early Saturday morning, the Portland Police Bureau said.
PPB identified the woman as 26-year-old Ashlee McGill who police say was walking in the area when she was hit by an “out-of-control” vehicle.
Authorities said the vehicle was one of two “speed racers” who lost control of their vehicles – leading to the crash.
At 5:39 a.m., PPB said officers were sent to the crash on Southeast Stark Street and Southeast 133rd Avenue. On the scene, officers reportedly found a car had hit a tree. On further investigation, they said they found a person outside of the vehicle, later identified as McGill, who was dead.
