At 12:31 a.m. on February 21, 2002, Portland Police responded to a fatal accident on I-5 southbound off ramp from the Marquam Bridge. The deceased has been identified as 35-year-old Phillip Hindman from Southwest Portland.

Fatal Investigators believe that Hindman lost control of his 1987 Suzuki motorcycle as he was merging on to I-5 Southbound from the Marquam Bridge. Witnesses estimate that Hindman was travelling approximately 80 mph on wet pavement when he lost control of his motorcycle. The investigation revealed that after Hindman fell from his motorcycle, his body slid under or into a 1984 Dodge van driven by 45-year-old Timohty McKaig of McMinnville, Oregon.

No citations were issued in this investigation. Consistent with Police Bureau Policy, this investigation will be sent to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review.
