PPB investigating car/bike collision at SE 60th and Division

Posted by Jonathan Maus (Publisher/Editor) on November 29th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

This just in from the PPB:

This evening, Thursday November 29, 2012, at 5:57 p.m., Portland Police officers assigned to East Precinct responded to the report of a traffic crash involving a vehicle and a bicycle at Southeast 60th Avenue and Division Street.

Officers arrived and learned that two vehicles were stopped at a red light and that an adult male on a bicycle pulling a trailer with a child inside were stopped behind the two vehicles. A third vehicle approached the stopped cars and ran into the back of the bicycle trailer and bicycle, trapping it between the front of the car and the rear of the next vehicle.

Medical personnel transported both the rider and the child to a Portland hospital with non-traumatic injuries. The driver involved in the crash remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. It does not appear that alcohol or drugs are a factor.

The crash is still under investigation at this time and no citations have been issued.

    Distracted driving or impaired driving?

    Usually drivers tend to respect cyclists with trailers as "more vehicle like" due to being larger and multi wheeled, thus giving more space on the shared roadway, IME.

      when the PPB doesn't even consider the bike to be a vehicle I can understand other people following their lead and not respecting them...

      this press release is a great example of police bias against people on bicycles...

    the O-Live comment section is swelling with victim-blaming as usual...

    A car runs into a stopped vehicle and injures a child but somehow it's the person that was hit that's at fault according to many O-Live commenters...

      I read your comments on O-live all the time. I have thought of getting into the act, but so many of the commentators are such idiots that it would be to much of a time suck for me....

        yeah, sometimes when it's really controversial and there's already over 75 comments then I know to stay clear... but I've had a lot of free time at work lately to comment and Like posts...

        sometimes I just stick to Liking the good ones and not actually commenting... and if I do comment then I try to know better than to respond to anybody replying to me...
