Man hurt on Harley
Sgt. Tim Symons identified the injured man as Steve P. Farley, 60, of 16801 S.W. Masonville Road.
He gave this account:
Farley was northbound in the 2100 block of Northeast Lafayette Ave. when he took evasive action to avoid crashing into a vehicle stopping behind a line of vehicles ahead.
He was transported by McMinnville Fire Department ambulance to the helipad at Cascade Steel Rolling Mills and flown to Oregon Health & Science University from there by Life Flight helicopter. His injuries were described as serious upon admission. However, he was discharged Saturday.
The incident remains under investigation. No citations have been issued to date.
