A Bend woman is seriously injured in a motorcycle crash around 1:30 Friday afternoon, that closed the northbound lanes of the Parkway in the north end of Bend for about two hours.

 

Nellie Conte, 56, was thrown from her motorcycle on the northbound lanes of the Parkway at the Empire exit.

 

Lt. Brian Kindel with Bend Police reports another crash further north on the Parkway was causing congestion and Conte was adjusting her speed when she lost control of the motorcycle.

 

She was transported to St. Charles where she remains with critical injuries.

 

Kindal states she was wearing a helmet and drugs do not appear to be a factor, but the investigation is continuing. The parkway was closed for about two hours.
