How many e-bike riders have died in PDX? We have so many deaths now we should start categories.
RIP Shane Johnson

" MCT investigators learned from witnesses and nearby videos that Johnson entered the roadway unexpectedly for an unknown reason and believe the driver had no time to adjust their course of travel.

Just to point that out so people don’t instantly demonize drivers.

Just for the record, this person was not on a bicycle like the police say. He was riding an electric motorcycle. A small, Segway e-dirt bike. I’ve asked PPB to update/correct their statement but haven’t heard back yet.

Thanks for the additional info.

It maybe technically incorrect but if the operating speed is comparable to a bike, wouldn’t you say it’s just a matter of semantics?
