Fatal crash

(ONTARIO, Ore.) - Police say a 57-year old motorcycle rider died Saturday night in a single vehicle crash on Interstate 84 about three miles east of the Farewell Bend Port of Entry west of Ontario. The victim's name is withheld pending next of kin notification.

Oregon State Police Lieutenant Richard Pileggi says tonight at approximately 7:52 p.m. MT, a 2005 Suzuki motorcycle operated by the victim was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 356.

"For an unknown reason, the motorcycle was negotiating a left curve and drove off the right side of the freeway onto the gravel shoulder. The motorcycle struck a fog marker and the victim was ejected," Pileggi said.

He says the victim was wearing a protective helmet and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

There were no witnesses to the crash.

Pileggi says state troopers from the Ontario Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Huntington Fire Department and ODOT assisted at the scene.
