GRESHAM, Ore.- A Gresham police officer was placed on administrative leave following a weekend collision involving a patrol car and a minivan that left a 29-year-old Portland man dead and two other men hospitalized.

Police refused to comment on reports that the officer was not operating the vehicle's siren or emergency lights and ran a stop sign before hitting the side of the 1996 Dodge Caravan on Saturday night.
