GASTON - A Carlton woman died about noon Saturday when her three-wheeled motorcycle was broadsided by a car north of Gaston at the intersection of Highway 47 and Southwest Old Highway 47.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Charlene Marvin, 64. Deputies gave this account:

Marvin was southbound on Highway 47 on a 2006 Harley Davidson when a 51-year-old Gaston woman initiated a left turn onto the roadway from Old Highway 47, intending to head north, in a 2014 Mazda 3. The motorist, who escaped injury, said she did not see the motorcycle.

Marvin, ejected on impact, was transported by Life Flight helicopter to a Portland trauma hospital. She succumbed to her injuries there.

Helmet and seatbelt information was not immediately available. No charges or citations were brought at the scene, but the Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team is investigating.

The helmet looks like it is on the ground.
--- three-wheeled motorcycle collided with a car north of Gaston.

More like the CAR collided with the M/C
No charges? Looks like negligence, incompetent and illegal left turn across the sb lane when it wasn't clear.
But hey, it's only a M/C---can't see them all.

Rebmc: Yes, car broadsided cycle. Good point. Have edited story to so reflect.
Citations and/or charges typically await completion of an investigation. I think we'll see something of that sort emerge eventually.
Yes, helmet is lying on the ground. But was it in use? We include that information when it's available, but it wasn't available in this case.

If I die at 64 getting hit riding a 3 wheel Harley I hope there is heavy metal at my funeral *devil horns*
