A Bend doctor has died as the result of a bike accident that happened on the west side of Bend last week.

 

Dr. Ginny Vader was a pathologist in Bend for the past ten years.  Police say last Tuesday, Dr. Vader was riding her bike on Century Drive south of the Reed Market roundabout when she crashed.  The cause of the crash wasn't determined, but witnesses say no other vehicles or pedestrians contributed to it.  Initially, it was thought her injuries were not life threatening, but Dr. Vader died five days later.  The Deschutes County Medical Examiner is looking into whether any pre-existing medical condition contributed to her death.
