A man has been arrested and charged with four crimes in relation to a crash on April 6th that injured a bicycle rider.
The Portland Police Bureau just announced they’ve arrested 30-year-old Abduraham S. Abubaker at his home (near SE Ramona and 122nd) for his role in a crash that took place on SE Gladstone at Cora just east of 34th last week. This section of Gladstone has two general vehicle lanes, unprotected bike lanes and a curbside lane.
Police say witnesses who saw the crash said a man driving a blue Dodge Stratus turned south onto Cora from eastbound Gladstone “and collided with the bicyclist.” The driver then fled and left the injured bike rider in the roadway. The victim was helped by people who had gathered nearby. They contacted help, remained at the scene, and gave information to officers.
Today Abubaker was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the Third Degree, Reckless Endangering Another Person, Reckless Driving, and Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants.
Anyone with information about Abubaker or this crash should contact Traffic Investigation Unit Officer Garrett Dow at 503-823-5070 or Garrett.Dow@portlandoregon.gov
