Motorcycle crash on Highway 6 kills one
Oregon State Police troopers responded to a serious motorcycle Wednesday.
The female rider, identified as Janene Tailleur, 49, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada died at a Portland hospital the evening of Aug. 16.
An investigation of the crash revealed the 2013 Kawasaki motorcycle driven by Tailleur was heading eastbound when Tailleur lost control of the vehicle on a curve to the right, according to Lt. Cari Boyd of OSP.
The motorcycle went over onto its right side and slid across the centerline into the westbound lane of travel, she said. The motorcycle and rider were struck by a westbound 2014 Ford F150 pickup driven by Eric Kading, 33, of Portland. Other occupants of the pickup were Laura Kading, 31, also of Portland, and the Kadings' two juvenile children.
Tailleur was transported from the scene by air ambulance to OHSU in Portland with serious injuries. None of the occupants of the Ford pickup were injured. Tailler was pronounced deceased at OHSU.
Troopers from the Tillamook, North Plains and St. Helens offices responded to the scene and assisted with the investigation. Tillamook Fire and Rescue and Banks Fire and Rescue assisted OSP.
