The motorcycle rider, Sean Henderson, 23, of Portland, was on fire but bystanders helped put out the flames on Henderson’s clothes and took him away from the crash. Henderson was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, deputies said.

The driver of the car, Cindy Stanley, 56, of Beaverton, was not injured. She was cited for Improper Use of a Special Turn Lane, which caused the crash, deputies said.

Both vehicles completely burned before Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue could put the fire out.
