PORTLAND, Ore. - A woman was hospitalized after being hit by a van near SE 112th and Division early Monday morning.

The incident took place at about 6 a.m.

The pedestrian's condition was not immediately available but a police officer said the victim did not have life-threatening injuries. Police said the driver of the van stopped and was cooperating with the investigation.

Brandon Harison, who was in a nearby parking lot at the time said he heard a loud bang "like someone dropped a dumpster" and then saw the woman in the street. He said she was not moving. "It was crazy," Harison said.

Police were on the scene investigating and some lanes of traffic were closed for a short time. Investigators said the pedestrian was crossing SE Division near 112th and may have been crossing against the light.
