Vose neighborhood committee chairman, civic critic hospitalized at OHSU

Henry Kane, a well-known and outspoken 87-year-old Beaverton resident, was struck by a car while crossing Southwest Hall Boulevard at Denney Road on Friday night.

He sustained serious injuries and was transported to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital by Metro West Ambulance. His condition was unavailable on Tuesday evening.

Kane was apparently crossing Hall Boulevard just before 10:25 p.m. on Friday. He didn’t make it across the street before the signals turned green for vehicular traffic, said Beaverton Police Officer Jeremy Shaw. A northbound vehicle driven by Lissa Larios, 31, of Beaverton, struck Kane while he was still in the crosswalk.

There was no indication of intoxication on the driver’s part, and the driver stayed on scene, Shaw said. The driver was not cited in the incident.

A retired attorney, Kane serves as chairman of the Vose Neighborhood Association Committee. He is known for his long-running involvement with law and politics at the state and local level. Until recently, Kane was a frequent visitor to Beaverton City Council meetings, where he questioned and spoke out on a variety of topics, from the city's 2012 purchase of the South Office Building at The Round to budget expenditures he considered extravagant or unnecessary.
