A 36-year old woman from Crooked River Ranch was seriously injured and airlifted to the hospital Saturday afternoon in a car versus motorcycle collision when a car pulled out in front of her Harley Davidson near Terrebonne, deputies reported.
Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies and Redmond Fire personnel responded to the scene at NW Lower Bridge Way and NW 31st Street about 4:40 p.m., June 16, Deputy Kyle Joye and Sgt. Chad Davis wrote in a news release.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a 1992 Honda Accord driven by a 65-year old Bend woman was traveling north on NW 31St and was attempting to turn east onto NW Lower Bridge Way when the collision occurred.
The motorcyclist was riding west on NW Lower Bridge Way when the car turned in front of her, resulting in the 1998 Harley Davison crashing into the Honda’s driver’s side, the deputies said.
The motorcyclist was flown by AirLife helicopter to St. Charles Medical Center with undisclosed injuries. The woman driving the Honda, and her 68-year old male passenger, also of Bend, were evaluated on scene and released. All names were being withheld pending notification of family members.
Alcohol is not expected to be a factor in this crash, according to the news release, and the injured motorcyclist was wearing appropriate protective gear at the time of the accident.
