Community members plan to hold a vigil for Bret Lewis*, the man who was hit and killed while bicycling on Tualatin-Valley Highway in Beaverton on Saturday.
The event is being planned by local citizen advocate (and 2011 BTA Alice Award nominee) Jim Parsons along with Hal Ballard, the executive director of the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition.
The vigil will be held this Friday (2/18) near the intersection of SW Tualaway Ave and Tualatin Valley Hwy. The gathering will begin at 4:30pm.
There are still many unanswered questions about this crash. Stay tuned for more coverage. For now, learn more by reading the comments on our story from Saturday.
*Please note the name change of the victim. We have learned from a friend that he goes by Bret, not Michael.
