Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into Saturday night's fatal traffic crash that resulted in the death of an Aloha-area motorcyclist on Highway 97 about two miles north of Moro.
According to OSP Senior Trooper Dan Dehaven, on July 10, 2010 at approximately 11:15 p.m. a Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by WILLIAM ROY ANDERSON, age 60, from Aloha, was northbound on Highway 97 near milepost 17 when it failed to negotiate a curve and struck a guardrail. ANDERSON was ejected from the motorcycle onto the highway and then run over by two commercial trucks traveling in opposite directions whose drivers were unable to avoid him.
ANDERSON was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The commercial truck drivers were identified as NENDERJIT SINGH, age 28, from Yuba City, California, and ROBERT DALE CURTIS, age 55, from Wenatchee, Washington.
OSP troopers from The Dalles Area Command office are continuing the investigation.
Sherman County Sheriff's Office, Sherman County Fire & Ambulance, and ODOT assisted at the scene. The highway was closed about three hours during the investigation.
