Police enjoy quiet weekend

Law enforcement has low activity during holiday weekend 

Two people were injured in separate motorcycle accidents over the July 4 weekend.

Both accidents occurred on Saturday and resulted in motorcycle drivers being Life Flighted with non-life threatening injuries to hospitals, according to Oregon State Police.

One occurred on Highway 203 and the other was on Highway 82, said Lt. Gordon Larson. He said they are both under investigation, but Oregon State Police suspect alcohol may have played a role in one of the crashes.

OSP made three driving under the influence of intoxicants arrests during the holiday period, which began at 6 p.m. July 3 and ended at 12:01 a.m. this morning. One was in Enterprise on July 3. Two more driving under the influence of intoxicants arrests were made over the weekend in Union County, with one also involving drugs and reckless endangerment of a minor passenger, Larson said. The driver was cited for possession of a controlled substance, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.

“It was an average holiday weekend,” Larson said. “It’s fairly consistent with what we see typically in the area.”

The Union County Sheriff’s Office made one driving under the influence of intoxicants arrest on July 4 and assisted OSP with one of the motorcycle accidents, said Sheriff Boyd Rasmussen

“I would say maybe it was a little less activity than normal,” Rasmussen said.

La Grande Police Department received numerous fireworks complaints at the end of last week, but had no major incidents. The
La Grande Fire Department reported no fireworks-related blazes or incidents.
