Police have released the name of the driver who was killed in a crash on NE Marine Drive.

Portland Police said 62-year-old Steven Ray Tomlinson, of Camas, was turning onto Marine Drive from 148th Avenue on Friday when a semi-truck crashed into him.

Police said the collision pushed Tomlinson’s car over an embankment and it came to a rest on the bike path.

A witness pulled Tomlinson out of the car and attempted CPR, but it was too late.

Police said the truck hit another car, but no one else was hurt.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and all reports will be given to the Multnomah County District Attorney, according to Portland Police.
