BEND, OR -- A Friday dirt bike ride turned into an Air-Link flight to the hospital for a Washingotn man. 

 

Just before 2pm Friday, Deschutes County Search and Rescue responded to a call about 51-year-old Steve Headley, who was found in the East Fort Rock OHV area near Camp 2, east of Bend.

 

"He didn't hit anything other than the ground," said Ronny Dozier, Search and Rescue manager for Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. "He came off of his dirt bike ... he had some sort of chest injury."

 

Two Deschutes County SAR ATV teams helped find and transport Headley, after which Air-Link transported him to Bend St. Charles Hospital.
