Saturday, June 04, 2005

An Oregon Episcopal School art teacher was killed Friday morning when his motorcycle collided with a car at Southwest Scholls Ferry Road and Raleighwood Way, said Sandy James, Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. Matthew Lyon, 58, of Southeast Portland was pronounced dead at the scene of the 9 a.m. accident.

James said Lyon was riding a 2004 Suzuki motorcycle south on Scholls Ferry Road when Stephanie Moshofsky, 18, pulled her Ford Escort from Southwest Raleighwood Way into Lyon’s path. The crash did not involve speed, drugs or alcohol, James said. Skid marks on the road showed Lyon tried to stop before the collision.

Moshofsky and her passenger, who were wearing seat belts, were not injured, James said. Lyon was wearing a helmet. An investigation is continuing.
