Do you know that a bill that would have formed a new agency to promote Oregon distilleries around the nation and the world did not survive the legislative session, a success for substance abuse treatment advocates who opposed the use of state funding to promote alcohol:
The Traffic Division Major Crash Team of the Portland Police Department responded to the site to investigate. The bridge was closed in both directions until approximately 8:00 a.m. when the investigation at the site was concluded. According to Portland Police, speed and alcohol are thought to have played a role in the crash.
The investigation is still active. Anyone with information regarding the collision or what occurred immediately after is urged to email cri[email protected] with the case number 23-146476.
