    Scary. I live a few blocks from there along Division. Typically people are ok driving along there, but the average speed is closer to 45 than the speed limit of 35.

    The article on Oregon Live says that the cyclist is expected to survive. I was glad to see that they omitted the obligatory comment about whether the cyclist was wearing a helmet. There’s a scary photo of the bike under the van. No helmet will save a person who’s run over by a van.
