A 25-year-old man died Sunday after a multi-vehicle crash at the intersection of Silverton Road and Williams Avenue NE, according to the Salem Police Department.
Jacob Steven Oliver, who was driving a motorcycle, hit an 18-year-old man driving a Mazda sedan on Williams Avenue around 7 p.m. on Saturday that was attempting to make a left turn onto Silverton Road, according to police.
The driver of the sedan ended up in a parking lot of a nearby store and hit the back of an Audi sedan. The driver ultimately crashed into the store’s front doors.
Oliver suffered critical injuries and was taken to Salem Health and was later brought to a Portland hospital. He died from his injuries on Sunday.
Police are continuing to investigate the crash but said the speed of the motorcyclist is being considered as a contributing factor.
The 18-year-old and a passenger were taken to Salem Health with non-life-threatening injuries.
