Roseburg motorcyclist hurt in crash in Green

A Roseburg motorcyclist suffered leg injuries Monday afternoon when he ran a red light and collided into the side of a passing vehicle, Oregon State Police said today.

James Timothy Pohl, 44, was stopped behind a vehicle on Roberts Creek Road around 1 p.m. when the vehicle turned right onto Highway 42. Pohl then drove straight ahead through the red light, OSP Sgt. Matt Bowersox said today.

Pohl hit a westbound Kia driven by James Pitts, 45, of Winston, who had a green light on Highway 42, Bowersox said.

Pohl was taken by ambulance to Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, where he was in fair condition today, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Pitts was uninjured, Bowersox said.

Pohl was cited on suspicion of failing to obey a traffic device.
