SUBMITTED PHOTO - A Dodge Neon struck two vehicles stopped at the intersection of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Weir Road on Thursday, flipping on its roof and killing the driver.A driver was killed late Thursday morning when his car crashed into two other vehicles and landed on its roof in the middle of Southwest Murray Boulevard.

Beaverton said a Dodge Neon was traveling southbound on Murray at 11:32 a.m. It approached Southwest Weir Road, where a Toyota full-sized pickup and a Toyota sedan had just stopped for a red light in the southbound lanes.

Beaverton Police Department spokesman Mike Rowe said it appears the Neon struck both Toyotas, traveling between them and then landing on its roof in the intersection. The Neon’s driver was alone in the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The deceased driver has not yet been identified pending notification of relatives.

Traffic through the area was rerouted for about four hours during the investigation but has now reopened.

Rowe said no traffic citations will be issued because the surviving motorists were obeying all laws.
