The incident occurred at the Portland State University Urban Center, a hub that houses university departments, eateries and is the location of a MAX station and several bus stops.

Police said the women were walking along the east sidewalk of Sixth Avenue when they were struck.

Several witnesses say the vehicle was a blue, mid-sized SUV. Portland officers are searching the area for a 2005 Mazda Tribute, with front-end damage and a leaking radiator and the license plate number 491 JHT.

A Portland police source said the registered owner of the SUV is flagged in the bureau’s database as suicidal with mental health issues.

Police also believe the crash was intentional based on witness statements.
