LUCILE An Oregon motorcyclist was injured in a Monday collision with a vehicle south of Lucile on U.S. Highway 95.
Paul D. Haynie, 64, of North Powder, was transported by Life Flight to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston and subsequently transferred for further care. Patient status was unavailable.
The crash was reported at 10:25 a.m., July 27, near the old Lucile Boat Ramp, according to an Idaho County Sheriff’s Office (ICSO) report. Patricia D. Ramsey, 62, of McCall, was driving a 2006 Ford van northbound when she entered the southbound lane to make a left-hand turn onto the left shoulder. She then observed Haynie southbound on a 2008 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and stopped in the southbound lane, believing the bike had adequate room to pass her on the left, according to the report. The motorcycle applied its brakes and skidded, impacting the corner of her van.
Haynie was wearing a helmet. Ramsey was wearing a seat belt, and her vehicle airbag deployed; she was not injured. A citation is pending against Ramsey for driving on the wrong side of the road.
ICSO Deputy Scott Paulsen investigated the crash. Dale’s Towing provided wrecker services. On scene medical services were provided by Riggins Ambulance.
