Grant County Sheriff's Department Press Release:

HARTLINE, Wash. – Two people were injured Saturday evening during a motorcycle crash eight miles north of Hartline.

Around 5:30 p.m. April 21, Grant County Sheriff's Deputies, Grant County Fire District 6 (Hartline) and Grand Coulee Ambulance were dispatched to County Road R-Northeast and County Road 50-Northeast.

Investigators say a 2002 Harley Davidson Roadster driven by Benjamin A. Baer, 30 of Grand Coulee, was northbound on Road R-Northeast and failed to make the curve at Road 50-Northeast.

Baer and passenger, his wife 25-year-old Anna Baer of Grand Coulee, were thrown from the motorcycle to the side of the road. Both were transported to Coulee Community Medical Center in Grand Coulee. Benjamin Baer was later flown on a MedStar helicopter to Providence-Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane for treatment of serious injuries, including a head injury. Anna Baer was treated at Coulee Community Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.

Both Baers were wearing helmets, but the helmets were not U.S. Department of Transportation-approved to reduce the risk of head injury.

The investigation continues.
