The Portland Police Bureau has learned 26-year-old Erin Catherine Brenneman of Southeast Portland died on July 14, 2017 at an area hospital. Erin Brenneman died from injuries she sustained when she was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Southeast 80th Avenue and Southeast Pine Street.

Officers continue to investigate this crash. Based on camera footage, investigators believe the suspect vehicle is a dark colored mid-90s full-size four-wheel-drive pickup. As a result of the crash, the truck may have minor damage to the center of the grill or front bumper. Investigators have released a picture of a vehicle that is similar in size, shape and color to the truck involved in the crash - this is not the actual suspect truck, however.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Phil Maynard at 503-823-2216, phillip.maynard@portlandoregon.gov.
