PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A motorist struck multiple people and vehicles along streets and sidewalks in Portland Oregon, Monday before he fled on foot and was arrested, police said.

One person has a life-threatening injury and was taken to a hospital. Five other people were also hurt and taken to hospitals. Authorities said they believe more people were hurt who did not need ambulance transport.

Police received a call shortly after 1 p.m. that a driver had hit a pedestrian in the Southeastern part of the city, according to Portland Police Bureau spokesman Derek Carmon.

Additional calls then came from people saying a person driving the same suspect vehicle, a Honda Element, was striking other people and vehicles, he said.

The motorist eventually crashed the Honda a final time, fled on foot and with help from the community, was apprehended by police, Carmon said. A group of people saw him run from the scene and corralled him until police were able to take him into custody.

Police said investigators were still working to confirm the driver’s identity.

The incident is under investigation.
