PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One person was killed and three people were injured in a crash in North Portland Saturday morning according to the Portland Police Bureau.

According to police, the crash happened near the intersection of North Rosa Parks Way and North Delaware Avenue just after 9:30 a.m.

Initial investigation suggests a black VW Jetta with two people inside was driving north on North Delaware Avenue when it hit the side of a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The Cherokee, which also had two people inside, was heading east on Rosa Parks Way at the time of the crash.

Police said the two cars hit with enough force to knock the Jeep onto its side, pushing it into a nearby house, killing one person and injuring the other.

Both people in the Jetta suffered injuries as well.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash. 

Police said North Rosa Parks Way and North Delaware Avenue will be reopened soon.
