090918 I5 crash

Quote:
WILSONVILLE, Ore. -- A group of more than two dozens motorcycles crashed on Interstate 5 Friday afternoon, seriously injuring two people and hurting at least eight more.

The crash closed all northbound lanes of I-5 south of Wilsonville until 4 p.m. Traffic is slow but getting through in one lane as of 4:20 p.m.

Early reports indicate a group of at least 26 motorcyclists were northbound on I-5 around 2:45 p.m. behind a passenger car when traffic ahead began to slow. The car and motorcycles collided, also hitting an adjacent vehicle.

Two motorcyclists were taken from the scene by air ambulance with critical injuries. Eight others were transported by ground ambulance.

Traffic was being detoured onto OR 551 from Exit 278 (Aurora Donald Exit) and back onto I-5.

A single lane has been opened to clear vehicles behind the closure point. A police investigation may keep northbound lanes closed for a prolonged period.

Use alternate routes and visit www.tripcheck.com for updates.

Im not going to stereotype, but if they were running side by side and close together there is no room for avoidance.

And by reaction if you are leisurely riding you are not prepared to react. grabbing too much brake over possible avoidance is common in that situation. And as you know you limit your ability to swerve when braking.

Prayers for those involved. Hopefully they will have a speedy recovery. Hate to hear of any rider going down no matter what they ride.

Two simple rules to remember:
1. Gear up for the crash, not the ride.
2. Know your bike, know your limits.

"some" choppers dont even have ONE disc up fron (as opposed to only having one to begin with on most)

its gets in the way of the shiny wheels.
