Woman killed in head-on collision on Roy Rogers Road

Injured male driver had drifted into oncoming lane, police say


Update: On Tuesday, Tigard Police released the names of the drivers involved in the crash.

A head-on collision Saturday morning on Southwest Roy Rogers Road killed a woman and injured the driver of the other vehicle.

The crash occurred at about 8:30 a.m. in the Tigard section of the road about one-eighth mile south of Southwest Scholls Ferry Road, near the city limits with Beaverton.

Roy Rogers, a busy route between the Beaverton area and Highway 99 in Sherwood, was closed to through traffic between Scholls Ferry and Bull Mountain roads into Saturday afternoon while the investigation continued, said Tigard Police spokesman Jim Wolf.

The adult female driver of one vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, while the 31-year-old male driver of the other vehicle was transported by ambulance to Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash. Officials are trying to determine why the male driver appears to have drifted into the oncoming lane before colliding with the other driver's vehicle, Wolf said.
