Beaverton Police say an off duty Washington County Deputy hit and killed a man with his vehicle. It happened near the Nike World Headquarters.
Just before 2 this morning police went to the intersection of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Bowerman Drive. That’s where the deputy, officers and paramedics tried to revive the man but were unsuccessful.
Beaverton Police Officer Matt Henderson tells us, “The initial investigation appears to have shown that the man was crossing the street near that intersection when he was struck.” KXL’s Annette Newell asked, “But the deputy actually had the right of way?” Henderson said, “It appears that way, but the investigation is ongoing.”
He says they do not think speed was a factor, and there’s no word yet on whether they’ll test the deputy or victim for alcohol or drugs.
The deputy’s on administrative leave pending the results of two investigations.
Police have not yet released the deceased man’s identity pending notification of his family.
