PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - One person died in a crash on Highway 30 near the St. Johns Bridge on Saturday morning, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

PPB said just after 6 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to a crash on Highway 30 at milepost six, just south of the St. Johns Bridge. When they arrived, they found a single vehicle that had crashed into a power pole, with live wires down on the street. One person inside the car died. He has been identified as 44-year-old Joseph Dubois.

Another woman inside the car was taken to the hospital. Police said she has since been released.
