Beaverton man dies in single-vehicle crash Wednesday evening
Michael Andrew Manzanares, a 29-year-old Beaverton man, died in a single-car accident Wednesday evening along Northwest Bethany Boulevard in the Bethany area.
Deputy Brian van Kleef, public information officer for the Washington County Sheriff's Office, said Manzanares' vehicle was traveling south along Bethany Road from West Union Road around 8 p.m. when he apparently lost control at Ridgetop Lane.
Manzanares' vehicle left the road, crashed into a metal light pole and struck a sound barrier wall, said van Kleef.
The crash closed both lanes of Bethany Boulevard for almost four hours.
The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team, also known as CART, was on scene, investigating the crash until about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.
Van Kleef said speed appeared to be a factor in the accident.
