Pair hit by SUV on Burnside Bridge, 1 dead


PORTLAND — Portland police say a medical problem might have caused a motorist to drive onto the sidewalk of the Burnside Bridge and strike two pedestrians, one of them fatally.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon on a perfectly clear day, and Sgt. Pete Simpson says the driver of the SUV did not show any signs of being intoxicated.

The driver struck and killed 36-year-old George Benjamin Carlson and injured 35-year-old Bridget Larrabee. Simpson says Carlson and Larrabee lived together in northeast Portland.

Simpson says the case will be presented to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review once the investigation ends.
