Motorcycle crash hurts couple

A Caldwell, Idaho, woman was listed in serious condition and her husband in fair condition Monday at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, Idaho, following a single-vehicle motorcycle crash Saturday in Wallowa County.

The Wallowa County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that Larry Ward of Caldwell was driving the motorcycle and his wife Madeline Ward was a passenger when the crash occurred just after noon. 

The Sheriff’s Office said the vehicle was driven off the right shoulder of a left hand turn in the road. Both people were thrown from the motorcycle as it rolled to a resting point about 300 yards down a steep embankment.


The Joseph Fire Department with help from Wallowa County Search and Rescue, emergency medical personnel from Wallowa Memorial Hospital and other concerned motorcyclists on the scene used a rope recovery system to retrieve the Wards from the steep slope.

The Wards were taken by ground ambulance to a landing zone, where they were picked up by Life Flight Network and flown to Lewiston.

The Sheriff’s Office expressed thanks to the numerous responders who helped at the crash scene.
