TIGARD, Ore. (KPTV) - The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team is investigating a deadly crash involving a pedestrian that happened on Saturday evening.

Just before 7:30 p.m., officers responded to the crash on Southwest Gaarde Street, west of Southwest Pacific Highway. Police said officers learned a 62-year-old woman was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee westbound on SW Gaarde when she hit a pedestrian.
