An early morning crash sent four Bend residents to the hospital. Around 4:15 Sunday morning, a pickup truck lost control on a curve on ward road near Billadeau Road, left the roadway and struck a large boulder. Jacob Bernhardt, 15, pulled himself out of the wreckage and went to a nearby residence to call for help. The driver, Lee Nikkolas, 19, was trapped in the wreckage. Bend Fire and Rescue responded with three ambulances, three engine companies, a heavy rescue truck, and a Battalion Chief. Two other passengers, Breanna Hogue, 18, and Jessica Lancaster, 21, managed to get out of the truck. It took firefighters over half an hour to get Nikkolas out of the vehicle. Hogue, Lancaster, and Nikkolas are being treated for serious injuries at St. Charles Bend. Alcohol and speed appear to be factors in the crash.
