A man was taken to the hospital today at 3:45 p.m. after being struck by a Dodge Caravan while riding his bike along the sidewalk of Highway 30 in Scappoose. Lt. Norm Miller of the Scappoose Police Department said the man was riding westbound on Highway 30 when a Dodge Caravan pulled out of the Dairy Queen parking lot, to turn east, then crashed into the biker.

“The van didn't see him and clipped the bike out from underneath him,” Miller said. “He landed on the ground on the left side of the car.”

Responders from the Scappoose Police Department and Scappoose Fire District wrapped a brace around the man's neck before placing him on a stretcher and loading him into an ambulance. Miller said he wasn't sure about the extent of any injuries at the time of the accident.
