BEND, OR -- A Bend man died after a weekend off-road crash. According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, 36-year-old Christopher Heising was riding a motorcycle in the East Fort Rock OHV area, Saturday evening. He lost control and crashed into a forest service sign.


U.S. Forest Service Law enforcement and Bend Fire medics responded and Heising was flown to St. Charles where he later succumbed to his injuries.


Investigators say Heising was wearing a helmet, but was not an experienced off-road rider. Speed and alcohol may have also been factors in the crash.
