Motorcycle crash

Main Street was blocked for about 30 minutes Thursday night after a motorcycle collided with a pickup truck at Washington Avenue.

Main Street traffic was stalled for about a half-hour Thursday night after a pickup truck and a motorcycle collided at Main and Washington.

No one was seriously injured in the crash, which happened about 4 p.m., said Police Chief Ray Duman.

Duman said the two vehicles collided as they both were traveling north on Main Street. Shane Boylan, 27, of 3670 Ninth Drive, attempted to make a left turn into the westbound lane of Washington Avenue in his 1990 Dodge pickup truck when the pickup struck a 1988 motorcycle driven by Kaiden Williams, 28, of 1235 Valley Ave.

Duman said Boylan, who was not hurt, was cited on charges of driving while his operator’s license was suspended and driving uninsured.

Williams was cited on a charge of not wearing an Oregon Department of Transportation approved motorcycle helmet.

A Baker City ambulance crew responded to the crash, but Williams, who was not seriously injured, refused transport. Duman said Williams later was checked out by emergency room staff at the hospital.
