YAMHILL COUNTY Ore. (KPTV) - A McMinnville man is dead after a “serous motor vehicle crash” Saturday on Northeast Albertson Road, according to the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office.

Just before 5 p.m., police responded to a crash involving a motorcycle and a van on Albertson between Northeast Dopp Road and Northeast Chehalem Way.

Police said witness statements and scene evidence indicated that the motorcyclist was traveling west at “high speeds” when he passed a vehicle in a no-passing zone, then failed to negotiate a curve and went down.

A commercial passenger van heading east struck the motorcyclist, who was declared dead at the scene.

The van driver and their six passengers were uninjured.
