A crash between a motorcycle and a vehicle Tuesday afternoon resulted in the motorcyclist being sent to the hospital after he reportedly clipped a car while it was attempting to turn.

According to Molalla Fire Disrtrict Chief Vince Stafford, around 2:50 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, a motorcyclist was traveling northbound on Highway 213 just outside Marquam when it hit a Subaru Outback that was attempting to turn.

Stafford said he was told that the motorcyclist was traveling behind the Subaru when it was about to turn left, likely onto Dryland Road where it was parked at the scene, when it swerved to try and avoid the vehicle, clipping the bumper with his leg.

Stafford said the motorcyclist was taken to Legacy Silverton Medical Center for leg injuries.

More information will be added as it becomes available.
