BEND, OR -- A man was critically wounded when he was pinned under a pickup loaded with firewood, Friday morning. Police say mechanical failure caused the unoccupied truck to move forward in the parking lot, at the Shepherd’s House. The victim lives at the northeast Bend homeless shelter.
Other residents and staff, along with several police officers, quickly unloaded the wood and lifted the truck off the man.
He was taken to St. Charles Bend. One officer was hurt during the rescue operation. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
