The cow was also killed in the the crash.

At about 8:00 p.m. an Oregon State Police Sergeant, a Baker County Sheriff's Deputy, and Baker City Fire Department rescue personnel responded to a reported crash involving a motorcycle and cow Highway 7 near milepost 13.

The crash location is about 35 miles from Baker City in southwest Baker County in an area designated as open range for cattle.

Preliminary investigation indicates a 2006 1200cc BMW motorcycle operated by 53-year-old Leigh Spurlock, from Milwaukie, and his passenger/wife, 48-year-old Donna Spurlock, were traveling south on Highway 7 near milepost 13 when it struck a Black Angus cow that was in the roadway.

Both motorcycle occupants were ejected from the motorcycle.

A passing emergency room doctor from La Grande stopped and rendered aid to both people while waiting for rescue personnel to arrive.

Donna Spurlock was transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Both the operator and passenger were wearing motorcycle helmets.

OSP troopers from the Baker City work site are continuing the investigation.
