Portland, OR – Two men are dead in two separate late night accidents.

Police say a man died on north end of the Marquam Bridge, after he was struck by a semi-truck just after 11pm Tuesday.  Witnesses tell KXL that it appeared the man had just stepped out his stalled car when he was hit.

In Southeast Portland, a motorcyclist was killed after colliding with another motorcycle and then being struck by an SUV.

Portland Police say it happened around 11:30 Tuesday night near 7th Avenue and Southeast Powell Blvd.  Police say bystanders attempted CPR on the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. All the drivers are said to be cooperating with the police investigation.
