Bike Fatality in Portland Area

Been following the Portland biking scene since I've been thinking of moving up there.

Today there is a report of another bike fatality.

To me, it seems suspicious - not as in 'murder', but as in the description from police so far doesn't make sense. Do riders really just veer out into high-speed traffic, even when they're all (cars and bikers) going the same way? I doubt it.

Below is a picture of a sewer grate along that road (link). As you can see, the road has bike lanes and they're clearly marked, and there's even room to get around the sewer grates and still stay inside the bike lane. Not much room, but something.
