FOREST GROVE, Ore. — Oregon State Police is continuing the investigation into a two-vehicle crash that resulted in the death of two people Monday.
OSP says around 9:25 a.m. they responded to reports of a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway 47 near NW Verboort Road.
Investigators say a 2002 Hyundai four-door passenger car driven by an 18-year-old female was stopped westbound on NW Verboort Road. The car pulled into the path of a 1996 Freightliner box truck driven by Cory Jordan, 44, of Gaston. Jordan had little time to react before the vehicles collided.
The car’s female driver and 19-year-old female passenger, both from northwest Portland, were pronounced deceased at the scene.
Jordan was not injured. Everyone was wearing seatbelts.
