(SALEM, Ore. ) - A 53-year old male motorcyclist died Friday night when he was involved in a high speed crash on the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 in Salem.

Witnesses included an Oregon State Police trooper on patrol.

Oregon State Police spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings says at approximately 10:07 p.m., an OSP trooper patrolling on Interstate 5 near milepost 261 witnessed the operator of a 2009 Harley Davidson lose control while passing other vehicles at an estimated 90 - 95 mph in the northbound lanes.

The operator, David Schneller, was ejected from the motorcycle as it crashed in the center northbound lane.

The trooper initiated emergency medical care and CPR at the scene until paramedics arrived.

The 53-year old motorcyclist from Tualatin was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was wearing a protective helmet.

OSP troopers from Salem, Albany, and Springfield were involved with the investigation at the scene.

OSP was assisted by Marion County Sheriff's Office, Salem Fire Department, and ODOT.

The left and center northbound lanes were closed about five hours during incident response and investigation.

I saw them pushing on his chest so hard. The paramedics were trying so hard. May he rest in peace!
