Beaverton woman killed crossing Hwy 99W in Tigard, police say

Police say a 90-year-old Beaverton woman was killed after she was struck by a car while crossing Pacific Highway in Tigard on Monday afternoon.

It was about 3 p.m., Monday, Feb. 16, when Martha Neal attempted to cross Pacific Highway at the busy Hall Boulevard intersection, said Tigard Police spokesman Jim Wolf.

As she was walking, she was struck by a vehicle driven by Tigard-resident Barbara Grant, Wolf said.

Grant immediately stopped the vehicle and offered Neal help until emergency services arrived. A police officer in the vicinity quickly responded to the scene, and several eye-witnesses stayed with Neal and Grant until an ambulance arrived. .

Neal was transported to Oregon Health & Science University hospital. She died early Tuesday morning, Wolf said.

No citations have been issued as of Tuesday, Wolf said, but the investigation is ongoing and charges may filed depending on the outcome of the investigation.
