PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A second pedestrian was hit and killed by a vehicle on Southeast Division Street Wednesday evening. 

Just after 9 p.m., officers responded to the 8700 block of Southeast Division Street on a report that a driver struck a pedestrian in the roadway. 

Medical personnel tried to save the pedestrian's life but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the driver stayed at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. 

Preliminary information indicates the driver was traveling westbound when he struck the man, who was in the road.  

The Traffic Division’s Major Crash team has responded to conduct an investigation after clearing the scene of an earlier collision involving a pedestrian about 3.5 miles east on Division Street. 

Southeast Division Street between 85th to 89th avenues is expected to be closed in both directions for several hours while police investigate.
