State police say a 19-year old Madras man was killed Thursday in a two car head-on collision just north of Bend. The accident happened at 12:20 p.m. on Highway 97 about one mile north of town and traffic was detoured for three hours during the accident investigation. ODOT’s Peter Murphy:   "A head-on collision on Highway 97 is tragic, but it also disrupts traffic completely. And it takes time to filter out what happened and that our first responsibility is to figure out what happened. Then number two; create a safe situation for everyone else. And it just takes time and it's got to be frustrating for people who are out there on the road. But I just hope that everyone understands that this is the way a process like this unfolds." State Police say Derek Lybbert-Arizmendez was southbound in a sedan when he drove across the snow covered median and hit an SUV head on.   John Siemens of Bend was driving the second vehicle and received only minor injuries.
