REEDSPORT, Ore. A Reedsport man was killed in a dirt bike crash during a camping trip with friends last Friday, police said.

Police said Chad Davenport, 21, left the camp on a friend's Yamaha dirt bike to go for a quick ride on Friday. When he didn't return, his friends set out looking for him.

They found Davenport a short distance away, and he was already dead, police said.

Investigators believe Davenport lost control of the motorcycle on a corner and launched off the road onto boulders. He was not wearing a helmet.

The group was camping near Loon Lake.
