BEND, OR -- A motorcyclist was killed in a crash that closed Southwest Century Drive for more than four hours, yesterday afternoon. Bend Police are still investigating and the names of those involved have not been released. 

 

Investigators say a Chevy Silverado pickup collided with a Harley Davidson near Mammoth Drive, just before 2 p.m.  Initial reports indicated the rider suffered life-threatening injuries. When Medics arrived, they started life-saving efforts, but the motorcyclist did not survive. 
 
Any witnesses to the crash are asked to contact Bend Police at 541-693-6911.
 
UPDATE: (07/04/18) Bend Police investigators believe Monday's fatal crash was initially caused by a deer. Authorities say 59-year-old John Alan Boop was unable to stop when a deer ran in front of his motorcycle. He collided with the animal, causing the bike to go down in the road. Boop was then struck by a pickup, driven by 21-year-old Nikole Cox, of La Pine. They say Cox is cooperating with the investigation.
