The Baker City Police Department is continuing the investigation into Tuesday afternoon's injury traffic crash involving a teenage bicyclist and an unmarked Oregon State Police (OSP) vehicle at the Campbell Street and 7th Street intersection in Baker City.
On September 27, 2011 at about 12:02 p.m. an unmarked OSP Dodge Durgano driven by Detective David Aydelotte, who is a 13-year OSP veteran, was traveling west on Campbell Street when it collided with a bicycle at the 7th Street intersection. Evidence indicates 17-year old Tyler Arthur was riding his bicycle north on 7th Street when it entered the Campbell Street intersection and the collision occurred. The intersection is controlled by stop signs on 7th Street. Campbell Street does not have a stop sign.
Tyler Arthur was transported by ambulance to St. Alphonsus Hospital in Baker City and later flown to a Boise-area hospital. He is currently listed in critical condition.
Detective Aydelotte was not injured.
Further details will be released at a later time when appropriate as the investigation continues. OSP is assisting the Baker City Police Department with this investigation.
