A Baker City man was seriously hurt when his motorcycle went off Highway 86 near Baker City on Friday afternoon, Nov. 19.

Terry John Everson, 63, was riding an Indian Chieftain motorcycle eastbound on the highway about 4:08 p.m. when the motorcycle went off the road and hit boulders in the ditch, throwing Everson off the motorcycle and into the ditch, according to a report from Oregon State Police Sr. Trooper Nicholas Hagedorn.

A Baker City ambulance took Everson to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center-Baker City, and he was later taken by Life Flight to Saint Alphonsus in Boise, according to Hagedorn’s report.

Everson was in critical condition as of Monday afternoon, Nov. 22, according to Saint Alphonsus-Boise.

According to Hagedorn’s report, “evidence of DUII was observed,” and information was given to the district attorney’s office for consideration of possible charges.
