Police say there is no evidence that alcohol or drugs were a factor.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - A 24-year-old woman was killed last night in a traffic crash on SW Scholls Ferry Road, according to Washington County Sheriff's Office investigators. The crash happened shortly after 8:00 PM.
They believe that the woman lost control of her vehicle, and crossed the center line where she was struck by another vehicle traveling the opposite direction.
Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a crash in front of 20299 SW Scholls Ferry Road in unincorporated Washington County. They learned that medical personnel had pronounced one driver deceased at the scene, and the other driver was taken to Oregon Health Sciences University with non-life-threatening injuries.
24-year old Carly R. Davis of Hillsboro was killed when her 1994 Saturn was struck by a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 40-year old Tony Safari of Beaverton.
Members of the Washington County Crash Anaylsis Reconstruction Team responded to the scene to investigate. The preliminary investigation indicates that Ms. Davis may have lost control of her vehicle, and then crossed over the center line where Mr. Safari struck Ms. Davis on the passenger side of her car.
Ms. Davis was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.
At this point in the investigation, there is no evidence that either driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Ms. Davis’ next of kin have been notified.
