The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
(SISTERS) - A North Plains-area man died Monday afternoon when he lost control of his motorcycle on Highway 20-W about twenty-five miles west of Sisters.
A 2002 Suzuki motorcycle operated by 29-year-old Kouman Ly, from North Plains, was negotiating a right hand curve on US Highway 20-W near milepost 75.5 when it lost control causing Ly to be ejected into the westbound lane.
Mr. Ly was struck by a westbound 1990 Toyota Camry driven by 58-year-old James Nylander, from Beaverton.
A cardiologist traveling through the area and OSP Senior Trooper Alan Santiago performed CPR on Kouman Ly for approximately 25 minutes before he was pronounced deceased at the scene.
He was wearing protective headgear.
Nylander and his right front passenger, 58-year-old Donna Nylander, also from Beaverton, were not injured in the crash.
Members of the Oregon State Police Bend Area Command Office, with assistance from the Linn County Sheriff's Office, are investigating the crash.
ODOT assisted with the heavy holiday traffic and US Highway 20-W was closed for approximately 20 minutes.
