PORTLAND -- A bicyclist was injured when a motorcycle went over a Northeast Portland highway barrier and crashed into him Friday morning.
At about 1:30 a.m. the cyclist was riding on a bike path along Interstate 205, near the NE Glisan Street off-ramp, according to Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson.
Ashley Cameron Benbrook, 28, crashed into the barrier with his 2002 Harley Davidson X88. He had been going about 60 to 70 mph, Simpson said.
"Benbrook and the motorcycle crashed over the barrier and hit 34-year-old Jeffrey Omar Glass, who was riding his bicycle southbound on the bike path," Simpson said.
Both were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Benbrook was cited in the hospital for DUII, reckless driving, speeding and violation of a traffic control device. Simpson said his blood-alcohol level was .094. The legal limit is .08.
He was riding a 2002 Harley Davidson Sporster X88.
