Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Thursday afternoon's serious injury traffic crash involving a motorcycle and car on Highway 97 at the SW Dover Lane intersection south of Madras. The crash seriously injured a Madras-area man.

On August 8, 2013 at approximately 3:00 p.m., a 1996 Cadillac four-door driven by GERALD S. GREEN, age 36, from Prineville, was eastbound on SW Dover Lane when GREEN failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a northbound 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by DONALD W. HECKATHORN, age 64, from Madras.

HECKATHORN, a paramedic with Jefferson County EMS ambulance, was seriously injured and transported by air ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend. He was wearing a protective helmet.

GREEN was not injured.

OSP troopers from the Madras work site are continuing the investigation. Senior Trooper Clint Prevett is the lead investigator. No citations or enforcement decision at this time.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Jefferson County EMS, Jefferson County Fire District #1, and ODOT.
