REDMOND, OR -- A 19-year-old Redmond woman was killed in a head-on collision that shut down Highway 97 for several hours, during Thursday's morning commute. According to State Police, Sara Edwards was southbound just before 7 a.m. She appears to have tried to avoid hitting a car that was getting on to the highway from the Desert Terrace Mobile Estates, just south of Redmond, but reportedly lost control of her vehicle and slid into oncoming traffic, colliding with a concrete pumping truck. Edwards died at the scene; the truck driver suffered minor injuries. 


Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call OSP at 800-442-0776 or *OSP on a cell phone. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, Redmond Police, Bend Police, Redmond Fire, Bend Fire and ODOT assisted at the scene. The highway didn't fully reopen until after 3 p.m.
