BEND, OR -- A three-vehicle crash on Deschutes Market Road was caused by one driver’s medical emergency, according to investigators.

 

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Tumalo area on a report of a possible drunk driver, just after noon Monday. While searching for the SUV (pictured, right), they were dispatched to a crash near Chasing Cattle Lane involving the same vehicle. They determined 62-year-old Edward Colburn failed to slow for traffic and rammed into the back of one car, pushing it into another.

 

All three vehicles had to be towed from the scene and Colburn was taken to the hospital with medical complications not related to the crash. The Sheriff's Office says investigators don't believe alcohol, drugs or other distractions were factors, and no other injuries were reported.
