Sheriff Brian Burnett reports a 77-year-old Wenatchee resident – Charles “Ivan” Bowman - was killed in a single motorcycle collision near Plain, WA Saturday afternoon.

A 911 call was received by RIVERCOM Dispatch at 2:34pm advising a motorcyclist had 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 was reported to be unresponsive and CPR was initiated at the scene. Chelan County Fire District #9, Cascade Medics, an Airlift Northwest medical helicopter crew and deputies responded to the scene.  Medical personnel attended to Bowman for over 45 minutes prior to pronouncing him deceased.

Bowman had been riding with his son and two other relatives when the collision occurred.  He was operating his motorcycle in the second position within the group of four as they entered a left-hand curve in the roadway just prior to the stop intersection with Beaver Valley Road.  According to witnesses, Bowman appeared to brake prior to heading off the right shoulder of the Chiwawa Loop Road.  His motorcycle traveled down a small embankment and impacted with the trees.

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.  Bow Inquiries concerning this media release may be made to Sergeant Kent Sisson (509)667-6864
