PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A bicyclist critically injured in a southeast Portland collision is being issued a ticket by Portland police.
The July 10 collision with a van left 34-year-old Hector Perez with life-threatening injuries. However, later that night the southeast Portland man's condition was upgraded. At that time authorities said they expect him to survive.
And on Monday, Perez was issued a traffic citation. The citation lists Oregon Revised Statute 811-280, with a charge of "Failure to Yield to Vehicle While Entering a Roadway (with crash)."
Police now believe the van was driving west in the left turn lane on Division Street, preparing to turn left onto 122nd Avenue.
"It appears that Perez rode his bicycle out of the gas station lot, on the northeast corner of the intersection, through stopped traffic in the westbound lanes of Division, and right in front of the van which was moving in the specified left turn lane," according to a Portland Police Bureau news release.
The driver of the van has been identified as a 64-year-old from southeast Portland.
All over Salem and parts of Marion County, road conditions were still hazardous Friday night with even the main roads coated with a layer of ice and snow.
A Marion County deputy and the man he was chasing were both wounded by gunfire in a Christmas tree field in Silverton Friday afternoon.
An arrest warrant was issued for a 40-year-old man with a glass eye for allegedly kidnapping a 13-year-old girl from Oregon City.
The season's first big snow storm hit the region Friday, closing schools and shutting down roads.
