Posted: Updated:

A Portland man has died after police said a car hit him and then took off on Saturday.

Portland Police said 24-year-old Hussain Ahmed Alhamzah was hit at around 5:30 p.m. on Southeast 122nd Avenue and Liebe Street.

Police said Alhamzah was parked on the east side of 122nd Avenue when a car, driven by 35-year-old Fernando Cuevas Jr. of Vancouver, Washington, was going northbound and crossed over the bike lane and hit Alhamzah as he was getting out of his car.

According to police, Alhamzah died at a Portland hospital.

Police said Cuevas Jr. was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of hit and run and recklessly endangering another person.

According to Portland Police, once the investigation is complete, it will be presented to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review. Cuevas Jr. likely will face additional charges at that time.
