A North Plains-area man died Monday afternoon when he lost control of his motorcycle on Highway 20W about twenty-five miles west of Sisters. The victim was thrown from his motorcycle and struck by a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. Efforts to revive the victim by an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper and a cardiologist traveling in the area were unsuccessful.
The driver of the Toyota who struck Ly was identified as James Nylander, a 58-year old Beaverton resident. Neither he nor his passenger Donna Nylander, were injured.
Members of the Oregon State Police Bend Area Command Office, with assistance from the Linn County Sheriff's Office, investigated the crash. The cause is still under investigation.
