La Pine Firefighters extracted two La Pine residents from their pickup after it slid on a snowy Highway 97 striking another car and rolling into a tree.

 

Just after 8:30 Tuesday morning, about 7 miles north of La Pine, Stanley Stolp, 68, was driving north on Highway 97 when he lost control of the pickup and hit a car driven by Laura Moulden, 32,  of Redmond.

 

La Pine Fire Chief Mike Stupkis says the pickup rolled, crashed into a tree, resting on its side and pinning Stolp and his wife, Linda, 65, inside.

 

The Stolps were taken to St. Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries; Moulden was not injured.

 

Highway 97 was closed for about 45 minutes.
