[ARCHIVED] Bike/Vehicle Crash at Fox Hollow Road and Sprague Street

Police responded to a vehicle/bicycle crash around 7 a.m. at Fox Hollow Road and Sprague Street. The crash occurred when a 1992 Lexus 300 driven by Stanley L. Fleming, age 61, of Eugene, was southbound on Fox Hollow Road and initiated a left turn onto Sprague Street, colliding with a bicyclist who was northbound on Fox Hollow, in the bike lane.

The bicyclist, Roger Dale Pettiet, age 51, of Eugene was taken to a local hospital with injuries. He was not wearing a helmet. Fleming was cited for Failing to Yield Right of Way to a Bicycle in a Bike Lane.

Eugene Police want to take this opportunity to remind bicyclists to wear helmets, as crashes can happen without warning - even while obeying the rules of the road.
