Bill would redefine bike lanes as extending through intersections

BEND -- On an overcast morning in November 2017, 31-year-old Jonathan Chase Adams was riding his bike north on Northwest Wall Street, headed for his job a few blocks away at Carlís Jr.

Vehicle traffic was stopped because of a red light at the intersection of Wall Street and Olney Avenue, according to court documents, but Adamsí bike lane was clear. He reached the intersection after the light was green and several cars made it across, at the same time as a Fedex tractor-trailer driven by Terrebonne resident Trenton Derek Sage.

The truck turned right.

The bike kept going straight.

Adams never made it to work. Instead, he crashed into the side of the trailer, bouncing against it several times before he was pulled under the trailerís wheels.
