Motorcycle rider crashes near Colfax


COLFAX – A Quincy man was injured when he crashed his 2005 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle on the evening of July 3.

Nathan J. Ortiz, 19, of Quincy, was riding west on State Route 26, about 9 miles west of Colfax, when he failed to make a curve and rode off the highway and into a dirt embankment, according to the Washington State patrol.

He was seriously injured and flown to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. He was wearing a helmet.

The state patrol expects to cite him for driving with his wheels off the road and for riding without a motorcycle endorsement.
