MCMINNVILLE, Ore. --  A woman died Sunday afternoon after she was struck by a 1955 Chevrolet while crossing a street in downtown McMinnville on her motorized scooter, police said.

Emergency crews responded just after 3 p.m. to reports of a car hitting a pedestrian at Northeast Third Street and Highway 99W.

Patricia Warren, 77, was eastbound in a crosswalk when hit by Jordan Christie, who was going west on 3rd Street and making a right turn onto 99W.

Christie stayed at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. Speed was not a factor and traffic lights were working properly, police said. The collision remains under investigation.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Sergeant Michael Huber at (503) 435-5617.
