SISTERS, OR -- A Bend man died Tuesday evening, from injuries he sustained in a crash east of Sisters. According to State Police, 58-year-old David Jackson was driving on Highway 126, at about 1:15 p.m., when he slowed to make a left on to Cloverdale Road. His Chevrolet Equinox was rear-ended by a GMC Yukon, driven by 40-year-old Andria Mengucci, of Madras.

 

Multiple people were taken to the hospital, most with non-life threatening injuries, including a young child in Mengucci's car who was unrestrained. Jackson was pronounced dead at St. Charles Bend, just after 5 p.m. 

 

Distracted driving is thought to have been a contributing factor in the crash, although the investigation is ongoing. Highway 126 was closed for nearly two hours.
