Two women killed, Portland driver arrested in I-5 crash early Saturday

Two women whose SUV broke down on Interstate 5 near Portland’s Fremont Bridge were killed in the wee hours Saturday morning by a driver police say was intoxicated.

Police arrested a 25-year-old Portland man, Michael A. Hanson, and charged him with two counts of criminally negligent homicide and driving under the influence of intoxicants.

The two women are Portland’s 41st and 42nd traffic-related deaths this year, according to police.

Police say the women’s SUV broke down on the freeway’s right shoulder at the point where the southbound freeway splits between Interstate 5 and Interstate 405. Another vehicle stopped to help and, as the women crossed the freeway to reach that vehicle, police say Hanson struck them in a 2016 Ford Fusion.

A third pedestrian was not injured, according to police, who are withholding the victims’ identities until their families have been notified.

Portland police closed the freeway from around 2:20

Activists call for action on gift ban bill before end of legislative session; four arrested in the process

Chanting “Pass the gift ban. Do your job” and “Stop taking bribes,” about 20 activists gathered in the hallway outside the Capitol office of House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff on Tuesday, demanding action on a bill making it illegal for public employees and officials to accept gifts.

The representatives from MarchOnHarrisburg said they have been waiting for action for four years and came to the Capitol with four members willing to risk arrest to remind House leaders of a pre-pandemic commitment from former House Speaker Mike Turzai and then-House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler to bring up House Bill 1945 for a vote by the full chamber.

It unanimously passed the House State Government Committee last October.

Lil Yachty is in some legal trouble after he was arrested for speeding through Atlanta, the local ABC affiliate reports. 

The incident took place last week when Yachty’s white Ferrari was pulled over on the Downtown Connector near University Avenue.
