Update May 11th, 2018 12:03 PM. Sheriff Brian Burnett reports on May 11th, 2018 Chelan County Coroner Wayne Harris has informed the Sheriff’s Office Anthony Wilson has passed away. Mr. Wilson was the rider of the motorcycle from the June 7th collision in the Colockum Road area. The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office extends our sincere condolences to Mr. Wilson’s family. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.


Original Story

Sheriff Brian Burnett reports on Thursday, June 7th, 2018 at approximately 0619 hours an injury accident was reported on Colockum Road at approximately milepost 18. It was reported an 18 year old Wenatchee male crashed a motorcycle off the roadway and had a serious head injury. Shortly after the initial report, they advised CPR was in progress. This area is in Kittitas County however access is much quicker from Chelan County. Emergency services responded from Chelan County.

 

When a Chelan County Deputy advised he arrived on scene, he reported CPR was still in progress. Eventually the patient began breathing on his own and CPR was no longer needed. Chelan County Fire crews arrived shortly after the Deputy. Due to the severity of the injuries and remote location, Lifeflight was requested. The patient was transported to the emergency room at CWH by helicopter. As of Thursday afternoon, he is in the ICU at CWH.

It is unknown if the motorcycle rider was with a group that camped out overnight in the area or if he arrived sometime in the morning.

wsdot logoGray Notebook also tracks social media reach, environmental efforts

OLYMPIA – A retirement tsunami is on its way, and when the “gray wave” hits the Washington State Department of Transportation in the next few years it stands to take away hundreds of current employees.

Up to 42 percent of the agency’s workforce may retire by the year 2022, based on the number of employees who will be eligible for partial or full benefits by that year. Of these, 20 percent will be eligible for full retirement by 2022 and are considered probable to retire. Both outlooks highlight the need for increased outreach to potential employees to ensure the agency is staffed to meet the needs of the traveling public, according analyses in WSDOT’s latest quarterly performance report, the Gray Notebook.

The publication, which summarizes the quarter that ended March 31, also includes annual articles on active transportation, travel information and wetlands-protection efforts. Highlights include:

  • People walking or bicycling accounted for 22 percent of all statewide traffic fatalities in 2017.
  • The number of @wsdot_traffic Twitter followers increased 37.5 percent from about 330,000 to more than 452,000 between in April 2017 and March 2018.
  • WSDOT added six new wetlands- and stream-mitigation sites on 33 acres in 2017 to help off-set construction work that affected the environment.
