Police identify pedestrian hit by two cars
Police have identified the pedestrian hit by two cars on Southeast 82nd Avenue on Sunday evening.
He is Frank Grammer, 61, who remains in critical condition at a Portland hospital.
One of the drivers, Brian Keith Monsrud, 53, was arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and Reckless Driving. The second driver was not cited.
According to police, at 7:12 p.m. on Jan. 26, East Precinct officers responded to Southeast 82nd Avenue and Raymond Street on the report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Officers and medical personnel arrived and located an adult male pedestrian, later identified as Grammer, suffering traumatic injuries. He was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment.
The investigation revealed Grammer was struck by a southbound Mazda Protege driven by Monsrud. Grammer was thrown up and over the vehicle and landed in the street, where he was struck a second time by a 2005 Volkswagen Passat Wagon, driven by a 64-year-old male.
The investigation is continuing. Once it is complete, the results will be forwarded to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review.
