A 36-year-old Gresham man is in critical condition after he was struck by an SUV while standing on the sidewalk Monday night.

Gresham Police said the man was standing on the southwest corner of East Burnside Street and Southeast 172nd Avenue when he was hit by a 2001 Dodge Durango around 6:10 p.m.

Paramedics arrived and said the man was in and out of consciousness. He was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries. He is currently listed in critical condition.

The driver of the SUV, a 25-year-old Portland man, stayed on scene and is cooperating with investigators.

Police said speed is likely the factor for why the SUV left the road and hit the man.

Multnomah County's Vehicular Crimes Team is investigating the crash.
