It appears a person walking on North Columbia Boulevard Monday was struck and killed by 34 year old Ryan M. Gawick. Gawick ran a red light in his Ford Mustang, striking the pedestrian, who was in the crosswalk. Gawick has been booked for Criminally Negligent Homicide.
Here’s the view that Gawick had while running the red light, courtesy of Google Street View. Obviously this is not the lane that he was traveling in.
The person who was killed hasn’t been named yet, but Portland Police said “the deceased pedestrian was blind and utilizing the crosswalk as he walked northbound across North Columbia Boulevard.”
Update, 9/26/2017 1pm: the victim’s name has been released, Reke F. Agee. He was 61.
