(WARRENDALE, Ore.) - Police say the driver of a car that crashed Thursday morning into a guardrail on Interstate 84 near Warrendale is believed to have had a medical-related problem.

Oregon State Police Lieutenant Gregg Hastings, spokesman for the agency, says around 7:15 a.m. Thursday, a 1996 BMW four-door driven by 66-year old Gary D. Robb of northeast Portland, was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 37 in the left lane when he reportedly suffered a medical emergency.

"According to a witness, the BMW car veered to the right across the eastbound lanes and crashed into the highway guardrail. The car came to rest in the middle of the eastbound lanes," Hastings said.

Local fire personnel responded to the scene. Hastings says LifeFlight was activated and transported Robb to Oregon Health Sciences University for treatment. He was using safety restraints. An OSP Fish & Wildlife trooper, ODOT, Cascade Locks Fire Department, AMR ambulance personnel and unidentified off-duty paramedics who stopped at the scene assisted. After clearing the crash scene, Trooper Colin Tracy was driving westbound on Interstate 84 in his unmarked ADEP (Aggressive Driving Enforcement Program) patrol car nearing Portland when he saw a gray motorcycle approaching from behind at a high rate of speed.

The motorcycle passed the unmarked ADEP patrol car after which Trooper Tracy was able to establish a speed of 101 mph near milepost 7, a 60 mph zone. Upon stopping the 2007 Suzuki motorcycle, Trooper Tracy determined the operator, 25-year old Jeffrey Pullen-Sayles of Sandy, did not have a motorcycle endorsement. "While the trooper returned west to continue the investigation, he stopped a motorcycle traveling over 100 mph and subsequently cited its operator and impounded the motorcycle," Hastings said.
