WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – A deadly two-vehicle crash blocked traffic in Washington County near Beaverton on Wednesday evening, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The head-on crash occurred on Southwest Scholls Ferry Road near Tile Flat Road, firefighters said.  

One driver, a man, died at the scene, the sheriff’s office said. The other driver, a woman, was transported to an area hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The sheriff’s office says it appears the man lost control of his car while going through the curve and crashed into the other vehicle.

No other drivers or passengers were involved.

Southwest Scholls Ferry Road is closed in both directions near Southwest Tuefel Hill Avenue while law enforcement is on scene. It’s not clear when the road will reopen.

Yo Fred..you're right. But in this case, part of the problem is that road. Once you get out into the rural..just like on Farmington, many drivers feel enticed to go fast through the farms, without weighing the potential deadly consequences. Those are fun roads to drive..within reason. The problem is, how many humans to you consider to be..reasonable?

Just curious

Have you recently driven on Tile Flat Road where this accident happened? This is No rural road anymore, years ago yes, but the transportation system has turned it into a super highway.
