PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman died early Monday morning after officers said she was hit by multiple vehicles on the I-84 eastbound ramp.

Portland police said they responded to a welfare check of an injured person on the ramp from eastbound I-84 to northbound I-205 at 3:05 a.m. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Officers added that investigators would like to talk to anyone who saw a white woman on or near the freeway ramp around 3 a.m.

The ramp was closed for several hours, but it reopened shortly before 7:30 a.m.

Investigators believe a semi-truck was among the vehicles that hit the pedestrian. Officials said the semi didn’t stop and the driver may not have been aware that they were involved. The driver is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 503.823.3333 and reference case number 19-112727.
