News Release
Hillsboro Police Investigate Fatal Crash Involving Tricycle - 12/07/19

Yesterday at 7:45 p.m., officers responded to a crash on Southeast 10th Avenue south of Southeast Cedar Street. A man on an adult-sized tricycle tried to cross the street mid-block and rode into the path of a northbound car. The car struck him. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance, where he died a few hours later.

The woman driving the car remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Preliminary investigation by patrol officers determined speed was not a factor, and the woman was not impaired by intoxicants.

Further investigation will be conducted by the Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team. No further information released at this time.
