PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police investigators have identified the 15-year-old boy who was hit by a car in north Portland Tuesday as Bradley Fortner, an incoming freshman at Roosevelt High School.

Investigators with the Portland Police Bureau said Fortner was crossing from the south side of North Columbia Boulevard when he was struck by a 1993 Nissan pickup being driven by 28-year-old Natanael Lopez-Castillo of North Portland around 7:47 a.m.

Officers and medical officials arrived to find Fortner suffering from traumatic injuries. He was transported to Randall Children's Hospital and is listed in serious condition.

Lopez-Castillo stopped a block away from the scene and walked back to talk to police, according to officials.

Portland officers said the Traffic Division's Major Crash Team was called in to investigate the situation.

Police said Lopez-Castillo showed no signs of impairment, and no citations have been issued or arrests made in the case.

The investigation into the crash is continuing, and bureau officials said once complete the case will be turned over to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review.
