Colton motorcyclist dies in crash on Highway 211
A Colton man died Wednesday night when the motorcycle he was driving collided with another vehicle on Highway 211 near Molalla.
At 8:56 p.m. Aug. 24, Oregon State Police troopers responded to a reported crash between a motorcyle and a van. The motorcycle operator, identified as David R. Legore, 57, of Colton, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Legore was driving a 2016 black Harley Davidson motorcycle southbound on Highway 211. Police said Legore's motorcycle traveled into the northbound lane and struck a 1997 white Ford van driven by Sean C. Drinkwine, 50, of Estacada.
Drinkwine, who is a member of the Estacada City Council, was not reported injured, police said.
Alcohol and speed are being considered as a contributing factor for Legore.
OSP was assisted by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Molalla Police Department, CRAFT Team (a multi-agency reconstruction team), and ODOT.
