A Wenatchee motorcyclist dies after crashing his bike in the Plain area Saturday afternoon. Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett reports 77-year-old Charles “Ivan” Bowman was killed around 2:30 in the afternoon.
The Sheriff says in a news release that Bpwman had been riding with his son and two other relatives when the collision occurred. He says Bowman failed to properly negotiate a curve on the Chiwawa Loop Road just prior to the intersection with Beaver Valley Road. The motorcycle traveled off the right shoulder of the roadway colliding with trees.
Bowman died at the scene after emergency crews performed CPR on him for 45 minutes. The Sheriff says Bowman and the other three riders in his group were not taking part in the “Toura Tech” motorcycle event being held in Plain. The collision is still under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.
