A ringing cell phone is believed to have created a distraction that was a factor in a serious injury crash between a car and motorcycle north of Redmond. 


Oregon State Police report that around 8 p-m Friday night, David Danner, 36, of Portland was northbound on Highway 97 near the Crooked River Bridge, when he was distracted by his cell phone ringing and drifted across the centerline, sideswiping Steven Horton, 41, of Klamath Falls while on his motorcycle.


Horton was able to maintain control of his bike and come to a safe stop and laid down his cycle; but he was injured.


He was taken to St. Charles Redmond for treatment of a serious leg injury.
