Austin Miller

Hal Ballard, acting executive director of the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition has organized a brief memorial service tonight for Austin Miller, the 15 year-old who was killed after colliding with a bus in Beaverton yesterday.

The service will begin at 5:00pm tonight at the intersection of SW Murray and Farmington Road.

Ballard says he and a group of supporters will hold signs with the ‘And we Bike‘ slogan, “to remind motorists of our relationship to them”.

The City of Beaverton has also granted permission for a ghost bike to be installed in memory of Austin.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
