PORTLAND, Ore. -- A pedestrian was critically injured after being hit by at least one vehicle in Southwest Portland Thursday morning.

Crews called at about 6 a.m. to the crash at Southwest 6th Avenue and Broadway found a man suffering from traumatic, potentially life-threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital.

"Preliminary information indicates that the pedestrian was struck by two different drivers, both of whom have remained at the scene," Simpson said.
