Ice and snow are cited as the cause for a multi-car crash on Highway 97 just north of La Pine.

 

Tuesday afternoon, just before 2 p.m., Frances Sittel, 62, from La Pine was southbound on Hwy 97 when she lost control of her car on the ice and crashed into the back of one car that cause it to crash into a second car.

 

The second car then spun across lanes, crashing into a car driving northbound by Lisa Stewart of Bend.

 

Stewart's car caught fire, but she was able to get out of the car. She was taken to St. Charles with non-life threatening injuries; all other drivers were not injured.

 

Oregon State Police, Deschutes County Sheriff, ODOT, and the La Pine Rural Fire Protection District all responded to the scene. The investigation into this accident is continuing.
