Aloha man killed in Saturday night crash
An Aloha man died after crashing his car into a tree south of Hillsboro late Saturday.
The victim is identified as Josue Sanabria, 21.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, the investigation began at 11:40 p.m. April 17 when deputies responded to a car crash in the 6600 block of Southwest River Road.
When deputies arrived with emergency medical crews, they found a man driving a 1990 Nissan 240SX had gone off the road about 20 feet and crashed into a tree.
The driver was the only person in the car at the time of the crash. He was trapped in the car and pronounced dead at the scene despite life-saving efforts by the first responders.
The interagency Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team responded to help investigate the crash and determined speed was a major factor. It is a multiagency team of specially trained law enforcement officers from the Sheriff's Office, local police departments and the Washington County District Attorney's Office.
The team investigates and reconstructs traffic crashes that may result in the prosecution of felony assault or manslaughter charges, or involve fatalities. The team also helps diagram crime scenes.
