PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man was arrested after striking and killing a pedestrian on Southwest Barbur Boulevard early Tuesday morning, say police.

The driver reportedly struck the pedestrian around 12:30 a.m. at SW Barbur Blvd and SW Parkhill Drive. The driver, identified as Ivan Cam, called police to report the incident himself. Once officers arrived they found the victim lying in the middle of the road, deceased.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office identified the pedestrian on Wednesday as 39-year-old Iulia Hanczarek.

Cam stayed at the scene and was cooperative, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Investigators learned Cam had at least two drinks at a bar in Downtown Portland before Tuesday’s crash, according to court documents. He reportedly told officials he was going about 50 miles per hour when his window “suddenly exploded.”

The 30-year-old was arrested and booked on charges including DUII, reckless driving and 2nd-degree manslaughter.
