Apparently, one vehicle was traveling in the wrong direction around a curve on Interstate 84 where it would have been difficult for drivers going the right way to see.
The wrong way driver was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. Investigators believe the driver was impaired. The driver, 28 year-old Brian Paul Gardner, was arrested for Manslaughter II, Reckless Driving, DUII, and was taken to the Multnomah County Detention Center.
The name of the victim is not being released at this time.
If anyone witnessed the crash and has not spoken to police, they are asked to contact investigator Dow at the Portland Police Traffic Division, 503-823-5070.
