BEND, OR -- A late-night crash on Powell Butte Highway is being blamed on a drowsy driver. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Thomas Prinzing called 911 Monday night to report he’d fallen asleep at the wheel and rolled his car.
Deputies arrived at about 11:30 p.m. and found the vehicle upside down on the shoulder of the road, with Prinzing trapped inside. The highway was closed for about 30 minutes while multiple agencies assisted in the rescue operation.
Prinzing was later taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
