Driver Killed After Crash on Highway 8 (Photo) - 11/07/19

On Thursday, November 7, 2019, at 2:10 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a serious crash on Highway 8 at NW 334th Avenue. When deputies arrived, they discovered a 2002 Ford F350 collided with a 2004 Ford F150. Both vehicles had significant damage.

The male driver in the F150, 82-year-old Delbert Dewolf of Hillsboro, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The adult female driver of the F350 and her two passengers had minor injuries. They were later transported to a local hospital for precautionary reasons. The driver of the F350 had no signs of impairment and was cooperative with investigators.

The initial investigation indicates the F350 was heading westbound on Highway 8, and Mr. Dewolf had been heading south on NW 334th Avenue. Investigators believe Mr. Dewolf stopped at the stop sign before Highway 8. After stopping, Mr. Dewolf drove onto Highway 8 and into the path of the F350. The F350 did not have a stop sign at the intersection.

Members of the inter-agency Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team (CART) responded to assist in the traffic crash investigation. Investigators are continuing their investigation into the crash.
