LA PINE, OR -- Three people were hurt in a crash that shut down Highway 97 for about an hour, near La Pine, just before noon Wednesday.

 

Authorities say a Ford Ranger pickup and a Toyota SUV slid off the  highway north of State Rec Road; the pickup rolled down an embankment, pinning one person. Firefighters pulled out and stabilized the patient before they were flown to St. Charles Bend. A second person was taken by ambulance, and a third suffered minor injuries.

 

It was one of several accidents in South County, where several inches of snow blanketed roadways.
