Knocked off Oregon bridge, motorcyclist in critical condition

The Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. — A 73-year-old Salem motorcyclist is reported in critical condition after a traffic accident that threw him from a bridge into the Willamette River.

Police say William Chamberland Jr. was trying to change lanes on the Marion Street bridge Monday when his motorcycle collided with a van.

The bike hit the barrier on the side of the bridge, and Chamberland was thrown in the water.

A boater retrieved him from the water, and he was taken to Salem Hospital.

The police described his injuries as potentially life-threatening, and a hospital spokesman said Tuesday that Chamberland was listed in critical condition.

Police told the Salem Statesman Journal they haven’t finished their investigation.
