Puzzling slow-speed head-on crash shakes up motorcyclist in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood

DAVID F. ASHTON - AMR Paramedics assess the motorcycle rider, after he crashed in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood. Emergency first-responders were called to the corner of S.E. 52nd Avenue and Flavel Drive on Saturday evening, December 16, at about 10:15 p.m. when a motorcycle and a Toyota SUV collided.

Police had not yet arrived, but paramedics riding Portland Fire & Rescue Woodstock Station's Truck 25 pulled up and provided emergency first aid, as did a responding ambulance unit.

It's unclear how the accident occurred, but it looked as this was a relatively low-speed, head-on collision.

The motorcycle rider was sitting up, and paramedics continued a lengthy assessment before the ambulance was dismissed. Apparently, no serious injuries. There is no public record of whether a citation was issued to either driver.
