(EUGENE OR) - A driver struck and seriously injured a man Wednesday morning along the southbound shoulder of Interstate 5 underneath the Harlow Road overpass in Eugene/Springfield area, and was cited by Oregon State Police (OSP) following an investigation. The man was struck by a car that had traveled onto a portion of the shoulder as he walked near his stopped motorcycle. The driver of the vehicle was cited by OSP for Failure to Drive Within a Lane.

On June 19, 2013 at approximately 10:40 a.m., 58-year old Terry Brateng of Dallas, had stopped his motorcycle with two other motorcycles on the right southbound shoulder of Interstate 5 near milepost 194 underneath an overpass next to a concrete shoulder barrier to shelter from the heavy rain. After getting off his motorcycle, Brateng was walking around the front of the motorcycle when he was struck by a 1990 Honda Accord that traveled onto a portion of the shoulder.

Brateng was seriously injured and was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend.

The car's driver, 20-year old Kaitlyn Inman of Springfield, and the other two motorcyclists were not injured.

OSP troopers from the Springfield Area Command office conducted the investigation.

Eugene Fire & Rescue and ODOT assisted at the scene. One southbound lane was blocked about one hour.
