A Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy is on administrative leave after they hit and killed a pedestrian with a patrol vehicle early Thursday.
According to the Beaverton Police Department, that department’s officers responded to a crash report at 1:53 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Southwest Bowerman Drive, near Nike’s headquarters campus.
At the scene, Beaverton police said they learned a patrol vehicle driven by an off-duty Washington County deputy had hit a man.
“Despite life-saving efforts by the involved deputy, responding officers and paramedics, the adult, male pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene,” Beaverton police said in a statement.
