A 30-year-old Redmond woman faces reckless driving and other charges after speeding through a stop sign and crashing her motorcycle into a utility pole west of Terrebonne Friday evening, Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies said Saturday.

Kambrea Myrtha Johnson was flown by Life Flight helicopter to St. Charles-Bend with non-life-threatening injuries, said sheriff’s Sgt. Troy Gotchy.

Around 7:35 p.m. Friday, sheriff’s deputies and Redmond Fire Department medics were dispatched to the single-vehicle motorcycle crash at NW Sedgewick Avenue and 31st Street, Gotchy said.

Deputies arrived to find Johnson’s red 2001 Honda CF4 motorcycle wrapped around a utility pole, the sergeant said.

An investigation determined that Johnson was heading south on 31st Street “at a high rate of speed” when she ran the stop sign at the intersection, crossed Sedgewick Avenue and struck the utility pole, according to Gotchy.

Johnson was treated at the hospital and released, a nursing supervisor said.

Gotchy said she was cited in lieu of custody at the hospital on the reckless driving charge, as well as a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, Gotchy added.
