PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police cited the driver in a crash that injured a bicyclist at a Southeast Portland intersection. The incident occurred at the same spot where another cyclist lost his leg in a crash earlier this month.
The crash was reported at Southeast 26th Avenue and Powell Boulevard just after 11 a.m. The cyclist, 37-year-old Peter Anderson, was struck by a Jeep Cherokee driven by 25-year-old Noah Gilbertson, according to Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson.
Simpson said Anderson's injuries were not life-threatening. Fire officials said he suffered a broken leg.
Gilbertson stayed at the scene and cooperated with police.
Investigators said Anderson was stopped on 26th Avenue until he had a green light and began to cross Powell. That's when police said he was hit by Gilberston's eastbound Jeep Cherokee.
Anderson had the right of way and a green light, police said.
Gilbertson was cited for careless driving with serious injury to a vulnerable person.
Earlier this month at the same intersection, 22-year-old bicyclist Alistair Stephen Corkett was hit by a pickup truck and his leg was severed.
A cyclist was killed in a collision with a tow truck Wednesday at Southeast Cesar Chavez Boulevard and Gladstone Street. A "ghost bike" memorial was placed at that intersection and a "No More Ghost Bikes" ride was scheduled for Friday afternoon.
