REDMOND, OR -- A 77-year-old Bend man was critically injured in a crash just west of Redmond, Friday afternoon. According to police, Michael Henderson was eastbound on Highland Avenue just before 2 p.m. when, for an unknown reason, he crossed into oncoming traffic near SW 31st Ave. His compact car hit the rear axle of a tractor-trailer. 

 

Henderson was found unconscious with ineffective breathing, and received immediate medical care from witnesses and officers until medics arrived. He was later flown to St. Charles Bend. The driver of the semi was not hurt. 
 
UPDATE (May 21, 2018) -- Redmond Police say Michael Henderson passed away at the hospital on May 18, as a result of the injuries he sustained in the April 27 crash. Investigators have not determined why Henderson crossed into oncoming traffic, but do not believe alcohol, drugs or distracted driving led to the crash. Because they believe no crime was committed, RPD does not plan to release any further information.
