Motorcyclist dies after crash with car in Beaverton

The motorcyclist was Michael Arthur Campero Jr, 44

BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) -- A man was killed Wednesday morning after a motorcycle and car crashed in Beaverton.

Beaverton police said the crash happened around 6:45 a.m. at the intersection of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Hart Road. 

According to the Beaverton Police Department, the motorcyclist was southbound on Murray and the car was turning from northbound to westbound Hart when the two collided in the middle of the intersection. 

Initially, police said the injuries were "serious," but later said the motorcyclist died. He's been identified as 44-year-old Michael Arthur Campero Jr. 

The other driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.

Investigators said speed and the motorcyclist's misuse of a helmet, along with a dangerous left turn by the car driver, were factors in the crash. 

Authorities are looking for anyone who may have seen the crash or either of the drivers before the crash. 

Witnesses are asked to call 503.629.0111 to talk to Beaverton police officer Bryan Dalton.
