A local man died Friday after his 2005 Jeep Cherokee was struck by a 2015 Max semi tractor trailer on Marine Drive, in Portland.
The Cherokee, driven by Steven Ray Tomlinson, 62, of Camas, began turning westbound on Marine Drive from 148th Avenue, when it was hit by a tractor trailer driven by Richard Ramsay, 69, of La Pine, Oregon. Ramsay was driving eastbound on Marine Drive.
Tomlinson’s vehicle crashed over the embankment on the northside of Marine Drive and came to rest on the bike path. Good Samaritans pulled him from the vehicle and attempted CPR, but their efforts were not successful.
After colliding with Tomlinson’s vehicle, Ramsay had a slower speed collision with a 2013 Audi Q7 that was driven westbound on Marine Drive. Neither Ramsay, nor the other driver, were injured in the crash.
Portland Police responded to the scene at 2:27 p.m. The cause of the crash is under investigation. After it is complete, it will be given to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for review.
Northeast Marine Drive, between 122nd and 162nd avenues, were closed for several hours, for the crash investigation. 148th Avenue, from Airport Way to Marine Drive, was also closed.
