A St. Helens man who was riding the Harley Davidson motorcycle that he’d just bought is dead after he crashed that bike Saturday afternoon on Highway 30 near Deer Island. Oregon State Police say that John Anthony Rethati, 29, of St. Helens was westbound shortly before 2 pm on Saturday, following his father. Near Tide Creek Road, Rethati lost control of the motorcycle, crashing into a guard rail. Rethati was ejected over the guard rail, while the bike continued down the road. Rethati died at the scene; it’s noted that he was wearing a helmet. The westbound lane of the highway was closed for about three hours for the crash investigation.
