Police ID naked man doing push-ups killed by car in N. Portland

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A naked man doing push-ups in the middle of a North Portland street was struck and killed by a car early Sunday morning.

The man was identified Monday as James Hunter, 43, of Portland.

North Precinct officers first responded to the report of a naked man running in traffic near North Columbia Boulevard and Portsmouth Avenue at 4:04 a.m. Sunday.

While they were en route, police received a second report that the naked man was doing push-ups in the road. Then, they received a third report: he had been struck by a car.

Officers and medical personnel arrived and found the Hunter dead.

The driver remained at the scene and was cooperative with investigators. Police said she was not impaired by alcohol or drugs, and no citations have been issued in this case.

The major crash team responded and investigators learned the driver struck Hunter with her 2010 Honda Civic while traveling westbound on Columbia Boulevard.

The road was closed for several hours during the investigation, but reopened later Sunday.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy, including toxicology, to determine the pedestrian's cause of death. Toxicology results are expected back in a few weeks.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Officer Peter Kurronen at 503-823-2208 or peter.kurronen@portlandoregon.gov.
