Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating a fatal crash involving a driver and a pedestrian at the intersection of Tualatin Valley Highway and SW 178th Avenue in Aloha.
As of 10 p.m. Monday, the eastbound lanes of the highway were closed to traffic between 173rd and 185th avenues.
The driver remained at the scene, according to a Twitter post from the sheriff’s office.
The intersection was a well-known dangerous spot for pedestrians when the Oregon Department of Transportation installed a traffic light there in 2012, according to an Oregonian/Oregonlive report at the time.
Bus stops and a convenience store contribute to steady foot traffic crossing the highway.
