Fatal Traffic Crash (Photo) - 12/06/18

On December 5, 2018 at 6:47 a.m. Beaverton Police officers responded to an injury traffic crash at SW Murray Blvd/SW Hart Rd.  Officers found a dark colored 2005 Honda Odyssey and a dark colored 1999 Yamaha YZF motorcycle were involved in the crash.

The investigation revealed the driver of the Honda was turning left from northbound SW Murray to westbound SW Hart. The Yamaha driver was traveling south on SW Murray.  The two vehicles collided in the intersection causing significant damage to both vehicles.

Community members stopped and provided CPR to the driver of the Yamaha.  The driver of the Yamaha, 44-year-old Michael Arthur Campero Jr, was pronounced deceased on scene.  The driver of the Honda stayed on scene and cooperated with investigators.

Investigators believe speed and misuse of a motorcycle helmet by the Yamaha driver, and a dangerous left turn by the Honda driver contributed to the crash.  The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team is assisting with the investigation.  The investigation is on-going. 

Investigators are looking for anyone who may have witnessed the crash or the driving behavior of the drivers leading up to the crash.  Witnesses are asked to call 503-629-0111 and speak with Beaverton Police Officer Bryan Dalton.
