PORTLAND, Oregon - The passenger killed in Thursday's fatal crash near Portland International Airport is identified as Jamie R. Pallviny-Brown, 43. Her family has been notified of her death.

The investigation reveals that she was in the passenger seat of the pictured 1995 Ford Mustang convertible when it crashed into a Freightliner tractor with a box trailer. Evidence at the scene indicated the Mustang was traveling west on Northeast Cornfoot Road at a high rate of speed and collided with the broadside of the trailer, in front of the rear wheels, as it was pulling out of a driveway. The Mustang went under the trailer and came out the other side.

The passenger of the Mustang Jamie R. Pallviny-Brown, was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the Mustang, a 56-year old male, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
