Oregon State Police are continuing to investigate an ATV crash in rural Umatilla County that sent a Milton-Freewater man to the hospital.
Eric J. Roden, 41, was taken by friends to Grande Ronde Hospital, then flown to Legacy Emanual Medical Center in Portland, where he was in serious condition, said Lt. Gregg Hastings.
Troopers learned of the ATV crash on a forest service road Saturday night while at the hospital on an unrelated incident, Hastings said.
The crash reportedly occurred at the junction of two Forest Service roads near the Umatilla County-Union County line.
Never miss a local story.
Roden was hurt when his 2005 Suzuki 700 ATV rolled over, Hastings said.
Alcohol is suspected of being a contributing factor in the wreck, he said.
