June 22, 2017 -- The motorcycle rider who crashed at Hagg Lake on June 5, Uziel Guzman-Avendano, died yesterday at Oregon Health Science University (OHSU) from injuries sustained during the incident. Mr. Guzman-Avendano's next of kin has been notified.


Man Injured in Motorcycle Crash at Hagg Lake

On June 5, 2017, at 7:11 p.m., Washington County Sheriff's deputies were called to a serious injury motorcycle crash on SW Scoggins Valley Road and SW Nelson Road in western Washington County.

Deputies learned that a male riding a 2016 Yamaha motorcycle was part of a group of motorcyclists riding around Hagg Lake. The initial investigation shows that the male failed to negotiate a curve in the road and collided with the guard rail at a high rate of speed. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this crash.

The motorcycle rider, 26-year-old Uziel Guzman-Avendano, of Portland, was taken by air ambulance to a trauma center in Portland. His injuries are potentially life-threatening.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office reminds motorcycle riders to obey speed and other traffic laws and wear reflective clothing to increase their visibility to other motorists. Riders are also encouraged to take ongoing motorcycle skills training - offered locally - to improve their abilities.
