Two Bend teens are injured; one seriously as passengers in a car that struck a house on NE Red Oak in northeast Bend Friday just before noon.

 

A 16 year old Bend boy was driving a black VW Jetta at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the car, sideswiped another car, then left the road and struck a front porch pillar at the home on Red Oak, and then a tree.

 

One 17 year old boy was ejected from the car and was taken to St. Charles with serious injuries; it was believed he did not wear a seatbelt.

 

A 15 year old boy was also taken to St. Charles with non-life threatening injuries. A third boy, also 17 years old was not injured.

 

The case is still under investigation, but the driver was cited for reckless driving; several charges of assault; criminal mischief; speed racing and more.

 

Due to his age, he was released to relatives but will appear in Deschutes Circuit Court in the future.
