The Portland Police Bureau explained in a press release a Rapid Response Team had to be deployed in order to help secure the area and get the driver to the hospital because the "hostile crowd" was slowing down their response time:
"Officers encounters a hostile crowd and a squad from the Rapid Response Team (RRT) responded to help secure the scene while the investigation was underway. The driver was transported to the hospital by ambulance with serious injuries. The incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made."
