Woman injured in motorcycle accident

A female motorcyclist was seriously injured last week when she lost control trying to slow down for a traveling partner along U.S. Forest Service Road 1419 about four miles north of Highway 20 in the Camp Sherman area.

The Oregon State Police Bend Area Command office is continuing the investigation.

According to senior trooper William Duran, on July 3, at 2:50 p.m., a 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Sheri L. Bryant, 51, of Granger, Wash., was following another motorcycle traveling together along U.S. Forest Service Road 1419.

As the lead motorcycle slowed to turn right, Bryant braked hard and lost control. The motorcycle tipped onto its side and slid across the opposite lane before coming to rest on the shoulder.

Bryant was seriously injured and transported to St. Charles Bend. She was wearing a protective helmet.

OSP was assisted at the scene by the Black Butte Police Department, Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, and Black Butte Ranch Rural Fire District.
