PORTLAND, Ore. – One person was killed and two others injured after a crash involving two cars Friday evening, police say.

Michael Axtman Dominguez, 33, died at the scene, police said.

The crash happened just after 8 p.m. at Southeast 10th Avenue and Madison Street. Police said Brian Setzler, 51, was driving a Smart Car when he ran a stop sign and collided with a Honda Civic driven by 34-year-old Jason Rodriguez.

The crash caused the Honda to hit a large utility pole on a corner of the intersection. Dominguez was a passenger in the back seat of the Honda.

Rodriguez and another passenger were taken to a hospital with injuries that police said were not life-threatening. Setzler and his passenger in the Smart Car were not hurt.

Police said neither driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Bystander Charity Hemak said almost two dozen people came running from nearby restaurants after they heard the crash.

"It was really loud. Any sort of squealing and skidding you normally hear, this was four times louder," she said. "It was a huge bang. It rang off all the buildings - enough to alert everyone to jump up and start running in mass crowds."

She said a woman who was an anesthesiologist tried to resuscitate him through the window of the car. She couldn't get into the car because it was so badly damaged.
