BEND, OR -- A Bend motorcyclist was killed Tuesday, in a crash that shut down Third Street for more than three hours. 


According to Bend Police, 21-year-old Davis Franco was riding north on SE Third when, at about 10:15 a.m., his motorcycle collided with the side of a pickup pulling a utility trailer. That pickup was driven by 43-year-old Ryan Wannemaker, of Bend, who investigators say was initially stopped at the SE Miller stop sign. He then turned left on to Third, into the path of the bike. 


Despite life-saving efforts, Franco was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say Wannemaker is cooperating with the ongoing investigation. Investigators are looking for anyone who saw the crash or the involved vehicles prior to the collision. Witnesses are asked to call Bend PD at 541-383-6911.
