Update #2.

The Broadway Cab Driver in last nights crash has been identified as 46-year-old Moktar Mohamud Mohamed and he suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the BMW 325 is 26-year-old Joseph B. David and he suffered no injuries. David had a passenger , 25-year-old Larizza A. Limuco and she suffered no injuries.

There were two pedestrians struck by the cab on the northwest corner of 10th and SW Morrison. The #1 pedestrian is 41-year-old Dian Rae Bennett. Bennett suffered a very serious leg injury. Pedestrian #2 is 41-year-old Lora Lee Nearing who also suffered a leg injury. Both will survive.

Preliminary, it appears that the cab driver ran the red light as he was westbound on Southwest Morrison Street. The Black BMW 325 was northbound on 10th Avenue in the far right lane. As the cab entered the intersection the BMW hit the back driver’s side of the cab which propelled the cab onto the Northwest corner of Southwest 10th avenue and Morrison Street.

The cab also hit ‘Rays Ragtime’ which is the business located at this corner. Once this investigation is completed it will most likely be forwarded to the Multnomah County District Attorneys Office for presentation to the Grand Jury.

At this point alcohol was likely not a factor for the cab driver or the BMW driver. However, speed is believed to be a factor in this crash.

The investigation is continuing.

Update: There were two adult women struck by the taxi not one.
