PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman was hit by a vehicle and seriously hurt while crossing Tualatin Valley Highway at SW 198th late Thursday afternoon, officials said.

The crash happened around 5:30 p.m., according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies said passerby stopped to help the pedestrian and one person performed CPR on her.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue said Life Flight was called to the scene and took the woman to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. Her identity has not been released.

Deputies said the driver stayed at the scene.

TV Hwy reopened at about 8:30 p.m.

Deputies said this was the second crash at this intersection in as many weeks.

“This is a place we have pretty frequent crashes involving pedestrians,” said Deputy Shannon Wilde with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. “As the other location is, TV Highway and 334th — both of those locations are where there is a bus stop and it is technically an unmarked crosswalk.”
