Portland car crash, December 2020

Two people pronounced dead after a car crash Saturday night in Portland, police say.

Portland police attended the intersection of Northeast Halsey Street and Northeast 162nd Avenue where they discovered one car in a parking lot with damage to the drive side. Police believe this was the result of a “T-bone” accident.

Both the driver and the passenger inside the car died, officials said.

A second car had major damage to the front end. A passenger in that car was pinned in and had to be taken out, police said.

Nearby businesses were able to provide officers with video of the accident. The video showed that speed probably played a role in what happened.

Major Crash Team (MCT) investigators found that the car involved in the crash was reported stolen and that the driver had escaped the scene. The driver, 18-year-old Tyviant Tilden Mancilla, was tracked down at a hotel near the Lloyd Center, police said.

Investigators found Mancilla, who had blood on his sweatshirt, and discussed with him. Mancilla admitted to being the driver. He was taken to the hospital for tests before being taken into custody.

Mancilla was booked on a charge of Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver (Hit and Run) involving serious injury or death. More charges could be added later, officials said.

This was the 50th Major Crash Team callout of 2020 and the 54th and 55th fatalities of this year.

Those with information related to this incident can contact Officer Garrett Dow at or 503-823-5070.
