Wonder where the statement; "traveling at a high rate of speed' came from? Doubtful that an accident reconstruction was done that quickly.

That information was released by the Oregon State Police as part of the daily activity log that included this crash.

The entry read, in part, " Vehicle 1 was travelling at a high rate of speed." Vehicle 1 was identified as the motorcycle.

It did not indicate how that assessment was made.

Sadly, they can estimate the rate of speed of the motorcyclist based on how far the victim is from the point of contact.
