Posted on 29th November 2013 at 16:49

The Sheriff’s Office and aid personnel responded to a serious motorcycle crash that happened yesterday afternoon in the 4600 block of Columbia Heights Road. A few minutes before 3 pm, it was reported that a 60 year-old man had crashed on a dirt bike, and had suffered a significant head injury. Deputies and aid personnel responded to the scene; they checked on the availability of LifeFlight, but the closest choppers were either in Eugene or Olympia. The victim was eventually transported to St. John Medical Center, where he was stabilized and then was transferred to a hospital in Portland. The man’s condition hasn’t been updated this morning. It’s noted that the victim was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
