BEND, OR -- One person was seriously hurt in a crash that impacted traffic just north of Bend for several hours, Thursday.  
According to Oregon State Police, a Ford SUV was southbound on Highway 97, at about 11:40 a.m., and slowed for another car. A semi truck loaded with gravel then rear-ended the SUV sending it off the right shoulder and into a tree. 


The driver of the SUV sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to St. Charles Bend. The semi driver received minor injuries.

 

Highway 97 was reduced to one lane in each direction for about four hours to allow for the investigation and clean-up.
