(EUGENE, Ore.) - A Springfield-area motorcyclist who was seriously injured Monday afternoon in a motorcycle crash, died early Wednesday morning at an area hospital.

The crash happened police say, when the rider lost control of his motorcycle and crashed on Belt Line Road north of Eugene.

Oregon State Police says 21-year old Timothy Russell Tull of Springfield was riding a 1997 Yamaha motorcycle September 14, 2009 at approximately 4:10 p.m. eastbound on Belt Line Road near milepost 6 when the crash occurred.

While approaching a disabled car on the inside shoulder partially blocking the left lane, Tim Tull reportedly lost control of his motorcycle and laid it down on the pavement.

During the crash, Mr. Tull's protective helmet came off his head and he suffered serious head injuries.

He was transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend where he died September 16th about 2:30 a.m.

OSP troopers from the Springfield Area Command office are continuing the investigation, and they say speed may have been a contributing factor in this crash.

The Eugene Fire Department and ODOT assisted at the scene.
