On July 6 2019, deputies with the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist Astoria Police Department with a pursuit of motorcycle heading out Highway 202.  The deputies responded to assist with the pursuit. After approximately ten minutes, the pursuit was discontinued when the motorcyclist went around a locked gate on a forest road. By the time the gate was unlocked for law enforcement, the motorcyclist was gone.

Twenty five minutes later at almost 10:00pm, dispatch reported a motor vehicle accident on Pipeline Rd. The deputies responded along with rescue, medics and Astoria Police Department to the scene of the motor vehicle head-on crash versus motorcycle that was believed to be the same motorcycle from the earlier pursuit. 

The motor vehicle contained three teens recreating in the area. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor in the crash. The teens were out enjoying the forest.

The motorcyclist, 30 year old Andrew Glegor, died as a result of the crash.
