PORTLAND — A pedestrian who was hit while crossing a Portland street Friday has died of his injuries.

A spokeswoman at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital says 25-year-old Joseph Randall Stone died late Saturday.

Portland police say he was struck by an SUV Friday morning while crossing at a marked crosswalk.

The Oregonian reported Sunday that the man’s family issued a statement asking the city to place flashing lights at the intersection where he was hit.
