CASE: 22-007307

 

 

Auto vs. Bicycle

 

On 10/4/2022 at 5:52 am, Milwaukie Police responded to a vehicle vs. bicycle crash on SE Lake Road at the Highway 224 exit in the City of Milwaukie. When police arrived, they found both the bicyclist and driver of a Toyota Sienna still on scene.

 

During the investigation police learned that the 43-year-old male driver of the Toyota had turned west, off the offramp onto SE Lake Road, after stopping at the stop sign when the crash occurred. The driver stated he did not see the bicyclist and stopped as soon as the two collided.

 

The 25-year-old male bicyclist explained he was travelling east on SE Lake Road and that his lighting had stopped working as he neared the intersection. The bicyclist explained he saw the Toyota stop at the stop sign so he continued, assuming the driver saw him. The bicyclist stated when the Toyota began turning west onto SE Lake Road he veered left to try and avoid the slow speed collision.

 

The bicyclist was transported to a local hospital with complaints of pain on his right side and minor injury to his right hand. The bicyclist is expected to survive and fully recover. 

 

No citations have been issued at this time.

 

The Milwaukie Police Department would like to remind drivers, bicyclists, skaters and pedestrians to use caution when approaching and entering intersections. Check the intersection in both directions multiple times, use appropriate safety equipment, anticipate potential hazards, and only proceed through when safe to do so.
