A 24-year-old Portland man died at the hospital after being hit by a car in Gresham.

Emergency crews responded to the 400 block of East Powell Boulevard at 2:50 a.m. Monday.

Landon Sanchez was found suffering from critical injuries. He was taken to the hospital and police reported Thursday that he died from his injuries.

Investigators said he was hit by a 2011 Nissan Sentra heading west on Powell Boulevard in the left lane. The 30-year-old man driving the car remained at the scene and has cooperated with the investigation.

Detectives said Sanchez was not in a crosswalk and was "likely unlawfully positioned in the roadway at the time he was struck."

The investigation is continuing and police are asking any witnesses to call the tip line at 503-618-2719.
