A crash in the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue of Roses and Flavel Street on Monday evening, August 15, brought Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers to the scene at 8:29 p.m.

Officers found a motorcyclist down near the center of the intersection with what officers described as ‘significant injuries’. The motorcycle had slid over the curb and came to rest at the fence outside the Checkered Flag Tavern, in the northwest corner of the intersection.

After the crash, the motorcycle slid off the highway, and up onto the sidewalk.

PPB Major Crash Team officers set up their FARO Accident Reconstruction unit to document the scene for later study.

The involved vehicle, a late-model Audi sedan, was stopped at the curb facing eastbound on SE Flavel Street, just east of 82nd  Avenue of Roses.

“Officers believed this would be a trauma injury and requested the PPB Major Crash Team to respond,” PPB Public Information Officer Lt Nathan Sheppard reported. “The motorcyclist was transported to an area hospital by ambulance.”

The driver of the involved car remained at the scene.

The other driver in the crash remained at the scene and cooperated with the ongoing investigation.
