I haven't found a news article yet.

Last night I could hear the sirens going up and over the hill. I listened in on the live scanner / dispatch feed here: http://www.wccca.com/PITS/

The incident happened on SW 175th, not far from the intersection with SW Kemmer Road. Also not far from TVF&R Station 69.

Driver and passenger of the pickup truck required mechanical extraction from the dashboard of the vehicle and were taken for medical treatment.

I heard over the scanner that it was head-on at speed, and neither the rider nor passenger on the motorcycle survived.

I don't have any other info, and I have not yet gone past the scene.

Two people are dead after a motorcycle attempted to pass two vehicles in Aloha last night and struck a truck head-on, according to Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies.

Keith Lawson, 31, and a passenger were riding northbound on Southwest 175th Avenue between Reusser Court and Kemmer Road. It's a hilly section of two-lane road, according to Sgt. Vance Stimler. Just before midnight Friday evening, Lawson attempted to pass two vehicles in a no-passing zone, when he struck a truck going southbound.

The collision was head-on. Lawson and his passenger, a 24-year-old woman, were pronounced dead at the scene, Stimler said.

The incident was less than 100 yards from the Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue's Station 69 at 9940 SW 175th Avenue. A witness ran to the station to alert authorities, according to fire officials. A firefighter with 17 years experience described the damage to the motorcycle as the most severe he'd ever seen, according to a release.

Lawson's next of kin has been notified, according to Stimler, but deputies are still working to contact the woman's family.

Earnest and Sheila Shottenkirk, the driver and passenger of the 1990 Dodge Dakota traveling southbound, were transported to OHSU Hospital. Sheila Shottenkirk had to be extricated from the vehicle. She is in critical condition. No condition was available for Earnest Shottenkirk, according to OHSU officials.

"The investigation is still ongoing," Stimler said. "Speed and decision-making are a factor."

Stimler described the incident as sad, and said it's a dangerous place to pass, given the rise and fall of the road. He said drivers have limited visibility in the area.

A crash analysis team responded in addition to the fire officials. The road remained closed for quite a while, he said.

More information on this story as it becomes available.
Be careful with your passes

as much as I enjoy riding at night... the drunks come out then and I'd sooner avoid them as much as I can.

Really sad. The damage to the truck is unbelievable.

It's hard to second guess this type accident, but in almost every situation, there's room on the center line for a bike between cars. Especially if the cars move over just a bit. I've never had to use that gap, but it's a better alternative to what happened. Anything is better than a head-on collision. But warp speed by the bike added to the speed of the truck may have made that type of avoidance impossible.

Ugh. This is only about a mile from my house. I ride the route at least twice every weekday.

There's several hills/dips, and there's just no visibility to pass,

Regardless, RIP rider & passenger. Hopefuly someone will learn from the horrible events.

Hills, no passing zone, and after dark. Bad time to pass two cars, especially riding two up.

I wonder if the truck rolled afterwards or they had to use the jaws of life on it. It looks like the rear quarter panel got crumpled.That's insane.

I'd talk shit, but fate has been on my side for more than one stupid decision on my part. Rip rider and passenger.
