LA PINE, OR -- La Pine Fire crews responded to several crashes on Highway 97 Monday morning, as winter returned to the High Desert. The first call came in at about 7:25 a.m., when the driver of a pickup lost control and rolled the vehicle near milepost 157. He was able to get himself out, but was taken to the hospital with back and neck pain.


The second incident occurred just after 9:30 a.m. in the same area. That driver lost control of of the pickup and also rolled, trapping two people inside. They were not severely injured, but crews helped get them out.
