Address: Ottawa Canada

On July 25th at about 1623 hours Deschutes County 911 received a call from a citizen bike rider in the Phils Trailhead bike riding area west of Bend. The citizen reported that Catherine Laurendeau of Canada had crashed her bike on the Kents Trail and was injured and non-ambulatory. A Deschutes County Patrol Deputy and U.S.F.S. Law Enforcement Officer were nearby and were able to reach the patient by foot. The Deputy and U.S.F.S LEO confirmed the patient was about 1.5 miles from the Kents Trailhead and unable to walk out. Two Search and Rescue volunteers and one Search and Rescue Deputy responded with two ATV’s and assisted Bend Fire with transporting Laurendeau back to the trailhead where she was loaded into a medic unit and transported to Bend St. Charles with non-life threatening injuries.

Two Deschutes County Patrol Deputies transported Laurendeau’s family from the Sun River area where they were camping so they could be with Laurendeau at Bend St. Charles.
