Brother Speed Motorcyle Club
On Sept 18, two dozen Brother Speed Motorcyle Club members were involved in an accident on I5 according to the Oregon Police. The interstate was closed for hours because of this. According to eye witnesses, the bikers were behind the cars and because of the traffic the cars and bikes tried to slow down. But instead the bikers collided with the cars and from then on the Domino effect took hold. Because of the collision many bikes were scattered on the pavement.
Two bikers were in critical condition because of this incident and had to be flown to hospitals in Portland by helicopter. Finally the interstate could be reopened at 6 PM in the evening following the chaos. Do you know anything about this? Were you on the interstate at that time or knew somebody who was?
