Motorcyclist Dies In Highway 35 Accident

A 66-year-old man from Brookings died Monday afternoon when the motorcycle he was operating crashed while he was attempting to avoid lumber that had spilled onto Highway 35 in Hood River County.  According to the Oregon State Police, David Bruce Hall was traveling north bound on Highway 35 near milepost 62.  A preliminary investigation found a Forest Service employee was driving a pickup with a load of lumber southbound on the highway and while negotiating a curve the lumber spilled out onto the road, partially blocking both lanes of travel.  The OSP says Hall attempted to avoid the lumber, which resulted in a crash.  Hall was wearing protective equipment and lifesaving efforts were made, but Hall succumbed to his injuries.  The accident occurred around 12:50 p.m. Monday.  The investigation is on-going.  The OSP was assisted on scene by the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office, Parkdale Fire Department, U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement and Oregon Department of Transportation.
