Post Motorcycle Pileup
WILSONVILLE, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon State Police say more than two
dozen motorcycles, most of them belonging to the Brother Speed
motorcycle club, crashed on Interstate 5 on Friday afternoon,
blocking freeway traffic for hours.
Police say the bikers were behind a car when traffic slowed in
the northbound lanes near Wilsonville, south of Portland.
They say the bikers and car tried to slow but collided,
scattering bikes across the pavement.
The Oregonian in Portland reports that two bikers with critical
injuries were flown to Portland hospitals by helicopter. Rescue
personnel say seven others were treated for shoulder and hip
injuries and broken bones.
The freeway reopened about 6 p.m., nearly four hours after the
accident.

Never a good read even if it's from back in 2009. Jerry sold his Harley Sportster in 2011, I tried to persuade him not to, but 'round here it's getting too dangerous to ride. Maybe someday he'll get another.
