A Salem area firefighter remains in critical condition at St. Charles in Bend after an early morning car accident near Prineville.  Oregon State Police believe a Salem area firefighter driving a van with ten other firefighters in it fell asleep at the wheel.  The van traveling on Highway 126, hit a semi.  All ten firefighters were taken to the hospital, but nine  were treated and released.  Marcelino Romero, 39, was taken to St Charles where he is in critical condition.  Rod Nichols with the Department of Forestry says the crew from the Salem area was on its way to fight a wildfire.  “They're basically on call the whole season.  In Oregon, already this season there hasn't been a lot of activity; but we have had crews on calls fighting fires in Oregon and other states, even though we haven't had al lot of fires.  The crews have logged quite a few road miles up until this unfortunate incident.” The crews were en route to assist firefighting efforts at the Brilley Mountain Fire near John Day.
