A multiple vehicle accident on Highway 97 early this morning critically injured a motorcyclist. Tthe accident happened around 5:30 Wednesday morning on Highway 97 between Bend and Redmond, near Gift Road. It's believed the motorcyclist was hit by an SUV and possibly also a semi-truck. He was airlifted to St. Charles and another person was taken by ambulance. Peter Murphy with ODOT says the accident really affected the morning commute: “For awhile things were pretty tied up out there. Unfortunately we had to close the road. It was a multiple vehicle crash. Right now we're still investigating the cause.” The highway was reopened just before 9 a.m.
