A Bend man is in critical condition following a motorcycle-semi accident on Highway 97 between Bend and Redmond early Wednesday morning. Henry Glowacki suffered the serious injuries. Sergeant Deke Demars with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office explains what happened: “The motorcycle crossed in front of the semi and the semi ended up rear ending the motorcycle and the driver ended up on the northbound shoulder and the motorcycle spun out and came to rent in the middle of the southbound Highway 97.” Stephanie Bennett, 33, was driving in the southbound lane when she hit the motorcycle. She suffered minor injuries when her car rolled over. The accident closed the highway for a couple hours and affected Wednesday morning's commute.
