Another Crash on Parkway at Cherry Underscores Urban Highway''s Dangers

Fortunately no child was injured in the school bus crash on Salem Parkway near Cherry Avenue this morning.
But it is a foreboding coincidence that it happened the same day the paper published a piece on the burial of Travis Lane, killed in a hit and run on Salem Parkway at Cherry last month.

Travis Lane, buried yesterday

Proposed bike park with bridge and highway for comparison
Our urban highways are dangerous. Speed kills.

And this is why the combination of the Marine Drive/Highway 22 connector and a new bike park is worrisome.

It's being reported now that the driver fell asleep, having returned from taking some people to Portland.
