DESCHUTES COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A road rage driver caused a crash that seriously injured a motorcyclist on Highway 97 in central Oregon, according to police.

Emergency crews responded to Milepost 128 near Southwest Young Avenue in Deschutes County at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said 20-year-old Justin Durr of Redmond became “enraged” when he was passed by another vehicle. Durr attempted to catch up to the other driver and was driving recklessly, which forced the motorcyclist to crash, according to troopers.

Jerome Worley, 40, suffered serious injuries and was flown to a hospital for treatment.

Durr was arrested and booked into the Deschutes County Jail on charges of reckless driving and third-degree assault.

Oregon State Police troopers were assisted by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and the Oregon Department of Transportation in this case.
