A hit-and-run victim suffered traumatic injuries in a southeast Portland Taco Bell parking lot, according to police.
Emergency crews responded to the restaurant at Southeast 126th and Division Street at 1:24 p.m. Wednesday.
They found a man suffering from injuries described as life-threatening.
Police said he was in critical condition Wednesday night.
Police said preliminary information indicates that the man may have been in an altercation with a female driver, who hit him with her SUV as she left the parking lot.
The only description of the vehicle is that it is a dark-colored SUV.
Police said homicide detectives are leading the investigation and it is being treated as a potential assault, rather than just a hit-and-run case.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact the Portland police non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.
