A Eugene man was injured when he crashed his motorcycle along U.S. Highway 380 Sunday morning, the Crook County Sheriff’s Office said.

Roger Paquette, 65, was injured when the 2002 BMW motorcycle he was riding left the road, became airborne and crashed near milepost 33.

Three passing motorcyclists found him, called police and waited for medics to arrive.

Paquette was flown by helicopter to St. Charles, Bend.

Deputies investigating the incident do not know why Paquette’s motorcycle left the road, but they said alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
