By , Columbian staff reporter

A 68-year-old Woodland man was killed Thursday when his car was rear-ended in slowing traffic on Interstate 5 in Portland.

Portland police responded at 3:31 p.m. to the crash on I-5 south at North Failing Street. Mark S. Sinclair was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a police news release.

Investigators determined Sinclair was driving a Honda Accord in the left lane when traffic slowed. A Mercedes Sprinter van, driven by a 48-year-old man, crashed into the rear of Sinclair’s Honda. Three other occupied vehicles were also struck, Portland police said.

No one was taken to area hospitals. The driver of the Mercedes van stayed on the scene and cooperated with investigators. Officers did not arrest anyone, the news release states.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to email crimetips@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference case number 23-280468.

The highway was closed at North Killingsworth Street for about five hours.
