PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A man suffered life-threatening injuries after police say he was hit by a car while walking on an interstate off-ramp Tuesday night.

Police say the man was walking on the Interstate 84 to I-205 off-ramp around 10:40 p.m. after his car broke down. Officers say he was hit by a driver who stayed at the scene after the crash.

The driver, Emmanuel Gonzalez-Coria, 29, was later lodged at the Multnomah County Jail, where he is facing charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and assault in the second degree.

The pedestrian, who has not been identified, was taken to an area hospital and is currently in the ICU. Police have not released the pedestrian’s name. His current condition is not clear.

Gonzalez-Coria is scheduled to appear before a judge Thursday.

This was the 53rd activation of the Major Crash Team this year, according to police.

It’s okay if Gonzalez-Coria has a valid driver’s license.

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

DACA recipient? Cartel operative? Visa overstay? Gang member? Here illegally?

These questions are important as it will highlight not only the long range ripple effect of Obama's illegal administrative amnesties, but the obstruction of the rule of law by corrupt leftist Democrats and RINOs. Those corrupt-o-crats are paid by the cartels to block securing the border and fighting the enforcement of our immigration laws.

And We The People suffer for it as a result.

Illegal immigration is NOT a "race".

Enforcing the rule of law is NOT "racism".

Lawlessness does NOT = "compassion", especially for victims of DUIs and their families..

We are NOT a "nation of immigrants", we are a nation of laws.
