Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers said an illness played a role in a motorcycle/SUV accident Sept. 24.
According to troopers reports, the accident happened at around 1 a.m. on County Road 2706, about 36 feet west of the intersection with County Road 2105, which itself is located 2 miles south and 2 miles west of Bartlesville, in Osage County.
At that time a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban driven by 60-year-old Johna Gay Jester of Bartlesville was eastbound on County Road 2706, as a 1983 Honda Motorcycle driven by a 56-year-old Bartlesville man was on the same road going westbound. Troopers noted that the man’s name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin on the wreck.
The Suburban reportedly went “left of center and entered into the westbound lane of travel causing it to impact with the motorcycle on the roadway before coming to a rest off the road.
Neither Jester nor passenger, 31-year-old John Lewis Jester of Bartlesville, were injured in the crash. The driver of the motorcyle was transported by Bartlesville EMS to St John Medical Center in Tulsa where he was admitted in stable condition for leg injuries.
Troopers listed Jester’s condition at the time of the accident as “ill or sick” and the cause of the collision as “left of center.
