A Madras-area man died at a Bend hospital from injuries sustained in a Saturday afternoon two vehicle crash in Madras on Highway 361 (SW Culver Highway) at SW Belmont Lane.

According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Sergeant Don Wagner, on April 12, 2008 at approximately 1:00 p.m., a 1981 Honda motorcycle operated by WAYNE SCHJOLL, age 51, from Madras, was southbound on Culver Highway when it was struck by a 1975 Chevrolet pickup driven by JEREMY POLLOCK, age 28, from Culver. POLLOCK was eastbound on Belmont Lane at the intersection with Culver Highway and was attempting to pull onto Culver Highway when his pickup collided with the motorcycle causing SCHJOLL to lose control and crash.

SCHJOLL was transported to Mountain View Hospital in Madras and later taken by air ambulance to St Charles Medical Center in Bend where he later died from his injuries. He was wearing a protective helmet.

POLLOCK was using safety restraints and was not injured.

Oregon State Police troopers from the Bend Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Madras Police Department, Jefferson County District Attorney's Office, ODOT and local emergency response personnel assisted at the scene.
