The suit filed by the family of 59-year-old Russel L. Davidson claims that there were no roadside barricades near Albany, Oregon, when the fatal accident occurred on July 8, 2018.

The only warning signs were & # 39; four small light pink ribbons & # 39; that were attached to the cable, reports OregonLive.

Osprey Corner, a company based in Missouri, is named as the defendant in the legal claim.

& # 39; Suspect knew or should have known that neighbors and others were using unpaved roads, and the suspect's decision to lay the thin steel cable over the road was intentional and willful and displayed reckless disdain for the safety of others & # 39 , according to the lawsuit.

Davidson, who lives nearby on Folsom Road, took a ride on his motorcycle at around 8 p.m. It is unclear when he hit the cable.

Relatives reported Davidson, a three-year-old father and regular night rider, missing just after 1:00 am, after he had not returned home, told the Linn County Sheriff & # 39; s Office the Gazzette Times.

Delegates found no trace of Davidson after a search in the area.

His adult son would later encounter the dead body of his father on the neighboring site for 6 hours, the sheriff's office reported.

The suit assumes that Davidson was driving along the dirt and grass road that entered the farm and other properties. The owners of the road did not place & # 39; forbidden access & # 39; signs to warn Davidson that he was driving on private property.

When he reached a fork on the road, he steered his motorcycle to the left and into the cable, according to the suit.

& # 39; The cable grabbed his neck and almost beheaded him & # 39 ;, the lawsuit says. & # 39; The cable cut through its trachea and carotid arteries. He died almost immediately. & # 39;

The indictment was filed by David's daughter, Dixie, on behalf of his legacy, in Linn County Circuit Court on August 22.

Marilyn Heiken and Derek Johnson, representing the family, were not immediately available when DailyMail.com contacted.
