PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The founder of Zupan's Markets in Portland, John Zupan, has died of injuries suffered Monday night when his motorcycle collided with a car.

A nursing supervisor at Legacy Emmanuel Medical Center told The Oregonian (http://bit.ly/qArFeV ) the 66-year-old died Tuesday.

Police say the driver of the car was speeding and driving erratically when it crossed the center line and hit Zupan's motorcycle head-on in Portland. The 32-year-old driver, Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez, was booked on charges that included assault and driving under the influence.

Zupan's website lists three stores with a fourth due to open later this year.
