On June 19th, 2024, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a report of a dirt bike crash on U.S. Forest Service Road 1028, south of Skylight Cave. Four juveniles were riding dirt bikes on U.S. Forest Service Road 1028, when two of the juveniles did not arrive at their destination. These juveniles were riding in pairs on two dirt bikes. Two of the riders checked the area and located the other two juveniles, who had crashed their dirt bike and were seriously injured.

The juveniles on scene began life saving efforts and contacted 911. A passerby assisted the juveniles until deputies arrived and took over life saving measures. Paramedics arrived a short time after the deputies, continuing life saving measures. Both juveniles were wearing helmets at the time of the crash, speed and variable terrain appear to be factors in the crash. Both juveniles were pronounced deceased at the scene.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to the scene, assisted by the Oregon State Police, who conducted a crash reconstruction. A medical examiner also responded to the scene to assist with the investigation.

At this time the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office will not be releasing the names of those involved, as they are juveniles. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has made official notice to the involved families.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Oregon State Police, Black Butte Ranch Police, and the Sisters Fire District.
