BEND, OR -- A Bend man died Tuesday evening, after suffering a medical emergency while driving east of Bend. State Troopers responded to Highway 20 after receiving a report that an SUV was eastbound when the 70-year-old driver crossed into the oncoming lane and stopped. A passenger was able to put the car in "park" and, with the help of a passerby, get Larry Wayne Hopkins out and begin CPR. Another passenger called 911. 

 

Arriving officers continued CPR until medics arrived. Despite life-saving measures, Hopkins was pronounced dead shortly after an air ambulance landed at the scene. Highway 20 was closed for nearly an hour during the emergency response. 

 

A family member reports Hopkins had a history of heart problems for which he was taking medications.
