Two people were killed early in a Saturday evening crash on Hwy 97 near Terrebonne. 

OSP reports that 19-year-old Justin Hendrix was driving northbound on Hwy 97 when a pickup truck driven by a 67-year-old man from Vancouver, Washington tried to pass him in a prohibited passing area on a snow-covered surface. 

The pickup driver lost control and crashed into the Hendrix vehicle.  Both vehicles went off the road. The pickup truck rolled on to its top, trapping all three occupants in the wreckage. 

The driver and one of his passengers died at the scene.  Another passenger was transported to a hospital with major injuries after being extricated by Redmond Fire and Rescue. 

The bad weather conditions contributed to the crash.  Saturday night’s storm…and people driving too fast…caused a number of other crashes…on the Bend Parkway and on Third Street near Reed Market Road…and other locations around the county.  There were no major injuries in those incidents.
