A 51-year old Eagle Point man died Friday afternoon when his motorcycle crashed on Highway 199 approximately sixteen miles north of Grants Pass.
On September 25, 2009 at approximately 2:20 p.m., a 2005 Honda motorcycle operated by HARREL EUGENE NEAL, age 51 from Eagle Point, was traveling southbound on Highway 199 when it left the roadway. The motorcycle drove onto the shoulder of the highway striking a guardrail. NEAL was thrown from the motorcycle, which came to a rest in the highway.
An ambulance crew which happened to be in the area arrived on scene within minutes of the crash. NEAL, who had been wearing a helmet, died at the scene.
The crash is still under investigation by Oregon State Police troopers from the Grants Pass worksite. Oregon Department of Transportation and Josephine County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.
