Gypsy Jokers Disaster

A 50-year-old woman named Lisa Ann Niehaus who drove head on into a pack of  “more than 40 motorcyclists” last Saturday night was arraigned yesterday on 16 felony and misdemeanor counts including multiple counts of criminally negligent homicide, third degree assault, unlawfully and recklessly causing serious physical injury and  reckless endangerment and a single count of reckless driving.

According to a press release issued by the Wheeler County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office, Niehaus “crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic…on Highway 19 at about Milepost 60, a location just east of Fossil. This vehicle struck a large number of motorcycle riders that were riding as a group to attend a locally held event at nearby Bear Hollow Park. Many of those in the group were self-identified as being members of the Gypsy Jokers Motorcycle Club.

“There were two fatalities on scene and numerous serious and traumatic injuries. This resulted in a medical response requiring ambulances from Spray, Fossil, Condon, and Arlington. Five different emergency air transports occurred from both on scene and from the Asher Community Health Clinic. Volunteer medical crews and fire departments responded, along with the Wheeler County Sheriff’s Office, Gilliam County Sheriff’s Office, and the Oregon State Police. Highway 19 was closed for almost nine hours as a local crane was called in to assist in clearing the wreckage.”

“A number of the victims remain in critical care at regional area hospitals. Due to the criminal investigation no names of the inured or deceased are being publicly released at this time. The families of the deceased have been notified.”
