PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Portland police on Friday identified a driver who was killed when his car crashed head-on into a semi on Swan Island Wednesday morning.

Investigators said Kyle Andrew Cline, 47, of Portland, and another driver were speeding northbound in the southbound lanes of Basin Avenue when they came upon a semi headed south a little before 5:30 a.m.

The other driver swerved to avoid the truck, but Cline crashed head-on into the semi. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The semi's driver wasn't hurt.

Investigators said the driver of the other car left the scene before officers arrived.

Police said the case will be handed over to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review once the investigation is complete.
