Motorcycle Rider Killed in Sunday Night Crash Identified

Monday, March 20, 2017

 

The motorcycle rider killed in a crash at Northeast 57th Avenue and Sacramento Street on Sunday night has been identified as Erik Thomas, 45, of Northeast Portland. 

Thomas was riding a 1998 Suzuki GSS motorcycle while the driver involved in the crash was Andy Nguyen, 43, of Northeast Portland. Nguyen was driving a 2012 Nissan Juke SUV. 

The Investigation 

Traffic investigators learned that Fry was riding southbound on 57th Avenue at a high rate of speed approaching Sandycrest Terrace. Nguyen was parked on the west side of 57th Avenue and pulled into the lane of traffic to do a U-turn to park on the eastside of the street when Fry crashed into the driver's side rear of Nguyen's vehicle. 

Nguyen did not demonstrate any signs of impairment at the scene. The Oregon State Medical Examiner is awaiting toxicology results on Fry to determine if he was under the influence of intoxicants. Information provided to investigators indicates that he consumed alcoholic beverages prior to the crash. 

Nguyen was not arrested or cited at this time as there is an ongoing investigation. Once the investigation is complete, it will be forwarded to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review and consideration of possible charges.
