MADRAS, OR -- A Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy hurt in a motorcycle crash last week continues to recover. According to the Sheriff's Office, Bill Kenyon was northbound on Highway 97, Friday afternoon, when he collided with a pickup turning on to the highway. He was off-duty at the time of the crash.
Kenyon was taken by ambulance to St. Charles Bend with multiple injuries and immediately underwent emergency surgery. Due to the crash, the deputy lost his right leg below the knee, and will need additional surgery for a broken pelvis and hip. The Sheriff's Office says he "is amazing upbeat and is already making plans to replace his damaged Harley Davidson with a three-wheeled motorcycle."
