A Redmond man suffered fatal injuries Friday and three other people were injured, including his wife, when their SUV was struck head-on by another whose driver lost control on Highway 20 near Santaim Junction, State Police reported. Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports shortly after 1 p.m., a black 2008 GMC Yukon driven by Ran Floyd, 45, of La Pine, was eastbound in the right lane, lost control. OSP Senior Trooper Joey Pollard says the SUV collided head-on with a westbound brown 2003 GMC Yukon driven by John Patrick McDonald, 70, of Redmond. McDonald was flown by Airlink to St. Charles Medical Center-Bend, where he is pronounced dead. His wife, Joann McDonald, 66, was taken by ambulance to the Bend hospital, as were Floyd and front seat passenger Young Lee, 72, of Salem. Two children in Floyd’s car, 13 and 7, were unhurt, Pollard said, adding that all occupants of both SUVs were wearing seat belts. Lee was listed in serious condition at the bend hospital late Friday afternoon, while Floyd and Joann McDonald were in fair condition, officials said. State Police said the highway had had packed snow and slush at the time of the crash, which shut the highway for more than an hour and caused miles-long traffic back-ups in either direction. The road was not fully reopened until around 4:45 p.m.
