The operator of the motorcyle was ejected and trapped partially underneath the Honda. The male, 38 year old John Hillebrand of Dallas, Oregon was extricated from the vehicle by Roseburg Fire Department personnel, and was transported to Mercy via ambulance for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Hillebrand was later transported to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland for further care. On Sunday, November 22nd, Hillebrand's family advised investigating officers that Hillebrand died of his injuries.
As is standard with a vehicle collision involving the potential for fatality, the Roseburg Police Department had a reconstructionist investigate the accident.

The driver of the Honda, 68 year old Patsy Stewart of Roseburg, was not injured, and she is cooperating fully with the investigation.
At this time there is no evidence to believe impairment was a factor in this collision.
