The passenger killed in Thursday’s fatal crash near Portland International Airport is identified as Jamie R. Pallviny-Brown, 43. Her family has been notified of her death.
The investigation reveals that she was in the passenger seat of a 1995 Ford Mustang convertible (photo) when it crashed into a Freightliner tractor with a box trailer. Evidence at the scene indicates the Mustang was traveling west on Northeast Cornfoot Road at a high rate of speed and collided with the broadside of the trailer, in front of the rear wheels, as it was pulling out of a driveway. The Mustang went under the trailer and came out the other side.
The passenger of the Mustang was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the Mustang, a 56-year old male, was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the semi, a 40-year-old male, was not hurt. He remained at the scene and showed no signs of impairment. No charges have been filed, but the investigation is continuing.
