BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — A Washington County motorcycle deputy was seriously injured in a crash Monday morning on SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway near SW 99th Avenue.

The crash happened around 11:05 a.m. when a woman driving a Volvo hit the motorcycle after coming out of a parking lot, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputy Mark Demmer, a 9-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, was seriously hurt but the injuries are not life-threatening, and the Volvo driver, 29, stayed at the scene and is cooperating. Impairment does not seem to be a factor, officials said. She was cited for failing to yield and criminal charges are not anticipated, officials said.

Accident reconstructionists are at the scene, and traffic in the area was affected for a time.
