UKIAH, Ore. (AP) - A motorcyclist whose body was found in a highway embankment near Ukiah has been identified.

Oregon State Police says a preliminary investigation shows 57-year-old Mark Hall Pfenning, of Bend, was driving north on Highway 395 when he lost control during a curve, slid and then went down an embankment.

A citizen who had stopped along the highway Tuesday afternoon discovered the motorcycle about 50 miles south of Pendleton. Emergency responders found a man dead at the scene.

State patrol is investigating.
