News Release
Deputies Investigate Fatal Crash between a Motorcycle and Passenger Vehicle - 04/17/19

On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, at 12:35 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a crash involving a motorcycle near the intersection of Northwest Zion Church Road and Northwest Milne Road. 

Witnesses called 9-1-1 to report the crash and stated the motorcyclist was severely injured.  Shortly after Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue arrived, the 66-year-old male rider of the motorcycle was pronounced deceased.  

During the initial crash investigation, deputies learned a GMC Jimmy was traveling eastbound on Northwest Zion Church Road, and a motorcycle was following the GMC Jimmy.  The GMC Jimmy slowed down to make a left turn on Northwest Milne Road.  The motorcyclist apparently attempted to pass the GMC Jimmy on the right, subsequently clipping the right rear-end of the GMC Jimmy.  The GMC Jimmy stayed on the scene of the crash and is cooperating with the investigation 

The circumstances of the collision continue to be investigated. Impairment is not believed to be a factor. The inter-agency Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team responded to assist in the traffic crash investigation.­­­­­­­­­­­

The intersection will continue to be closed while the crash investigation continues.
