PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — One person was killed in a crash involving a semi-truck Thursday evening near the Portland International Airport, police said.

The crash happened shortly before 6 p.m. in the 5100 block of NE Cornfoot Road. A 1995 Ford Mustang convertible went under the trailer pulled by the semi-truck, officials at the scene said.

A passenger in the car was killed and the driver was rushed to a hospital, according to the Portland Police Bureau. The passenger was later publicly identified as 43-year-old Jamie R. Pallviny-Brown.

The 56-year-old driver was seriously hurt. The driver of the semi-truck was unhurt and was not impaired, authorities said.

Investigators said it appeared the Mustang was headed west at a high rate of speed and hit the broadside of the truck trailer as it pulled out of a driveway. The Mustang went under the truck and came out the other side.

No charges have been filed and the investigation continues at this time.
