A 21-year-old student enrolled in the International School of Portland Community College (Rock Creek Campus) has died from injuries sustained in a collision with a Ford Ranger pickup-truck last Tuesday.
According to an email sent to staff at the college, Roy Tze from Hong Kong died yesterday evening at Emanuel Hospital after an “unsuccessful operation”.
The Hillsboro Argus reported the collision on Friday and said that according to preliminary investigations, Tze
“apparently missed a stoplight while headed westbound on Quatama Road at 7:05 a.m. when he entered the intersection with Northwest 205th Avenue against a red light.
Hillsboro’s Jay Humphrey, 58, was driving his truck southbound on 205th at about 35 mph.
According to witnesses, the bike had no light. Tze was wearing headphones and dark clothing, but no helmet. No citations were issued.
