A motorcyclist was injured Monday afternoon when he was struck by a pickup at the intersection of Highway 99W and 47.
Oregon State Police Trooper Phil Richardson identified the victim as Lynn Clyde McKibben, 70. He sustained a serious leg injury and was transported by a Life Flight helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland.
Richardson gave this account of the 4:30 p.m. incident.
McKibben, riding a 2014 Honda motorcycle, was southbound on Highway 99W. Jeannie G.
