A Klamath Falls Man died Thursday evening when he lost control of his motorcycle on Highway 140E about 27 miles east of Klamath Falls.

On June 17, 2010, at approximately 9:30 p.m., JEFFERY DEAN RANDALL, age 39, from Klamath Falls, was operating a 1990 Kawasaki motorcycle eastbound on Highway 140E near milepost 29. As RANDALL was negotiating a left curve the motorcycle travelled on to the gravel shoulder where he lost control. The motorcycle crashed into a rock, ejecting RANDALL. He and the motorcycle came to rest amongst a group of large boulders.

RANDALL was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was wearing a protective helmet; however, he did not have a motorcycle endorsement.
Oregon State Police troopers from the Klamath Falls Area Command office and Lakeview work site are continuing the investigation.

ODOT, Klamath County Fire District 5, and Bonanza Ambulance assisted at the scene.
