A 43-year-old woman in a southeast Portland crosswalk was hit by a car and critically injured Wednesday night.

Emergency crews responded to the 10100 block of Southeast Main Street at 5:13 p.m.

Jessica Michelle Moore of Portland was taken to the hospital with injuries described as life-threatening. She remained in critical condition Thursday morning.

The driver, a 56-year-old man from Elk Grove, California, remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, according to police. Officers said the driver was not impaired at the time of the crash.

The investigation is ongoing and once complete the case will be forwarded to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review.
