Yet another pedestrian killed on 82nd Avenue

Unlike the April 10 outer East Portland deadly crash, though, this time the driver hit-and-fled the scene …

In the Cully neighborhood, an ambulance races to where a man was injured by a hit-and-run driver – but he did not survive.

Only a block north of where a pedestrian was killed on April 10 along NE 82nd Avenue of Roses, another person was killed two Saturdays later, on April 24.

Portland Police Bureau (PPB) North Precinct officers were again dispatched to NE 82nd Avenue of Roses, this time near the intersection with Alberta Street.

Officers found an adult male with fatal injuries. What they didn’t find was the vehicle, or the driver, responsible for it.

The thoroughfare was closed for several hours, from NE Wygant to Killingsworth Streets, while members of the PPB Major Crash Team investigated the fatality.

Two days later, a Portland Police spokesperson reported that the deceased was 30-year-old Anthony L. Tolliver. “The investigation is continuing into the circumstances of the crash, and the identity of the driver involved,” the official added.

If you or someone you know has more information about this case, please email Traffic Investigations Officer Phil Maynard at – or call  503-823-2216.

This is already the 23rd fatal traffic crash for 2021 in the City of Portland, and the 25th Major Crash Team activation.
