Local News


Saturday started out to be a bad night on Central Oregon roadways. Overcast skies and intermittent snow have combined to create slippery surfaces and even black ice in some areas. A crash on Hwy 20 east, near MP 35 earlier this evening caused a single vehicle rollover crash that trapped two people in the vehicle, while a 3rd occupant managed to free himself. As emergency crews arrived on the scene from Bend, they all reported black ice approaching the scene. Injuries reportedly were not life threatening.  Another crash, on Hwy 361 (that’s the Old Culver Highway) and Highland caused major injuries. Scanner reports indicate it was a head-on collision involving two vehicles. Apparently several people were ejected from the vehicle including a child. It took three ambulances to get the patients to area hospitals. Then, an ambulance from Bend was sent to meet one of the Jefferson County Ambulances on its way to St. Charles in Bend with several patients. No other details are available. Then, another call came in of a vehicle that rolled off the roadway on Skyliners Drive. Nobody was injured in that crash. The roads throughout Central Oregon are becoming extremely slippery. As the drunk driving crowd hits the streets at bar closing time, there will be a lot of black ice and packed snow.
