Highway 97 Crash Ties Up Traffic for an Hour


Several people from Central Oregon are recovering today from a dramatic crash on Highway 97 that involved several vehicles.  Witnesses say an SUV careened over the median barrier on Highway 97 near Deschutes Junction Monday morning, striking two other vehicles and causing closures in both directions as an Airlink helicopter was called to the scene. The crash on northbound Highway 97 near Deschutes Market Road occurred shortly before 10 a.m.  Lt. Kevin Dizney understands why drivers in the area may have been shocked by the crash: “Any kind of accident like that where you have multiple cars, can be very traumatic especially for cars passing by and seeing something like that. It's also kind of unusual to see a car on the wrong side of the center barrier like that but that may also have been the result of the location and where those jersey barriers ended, if you will.” Those taken to the hospital as a result of the three car crash were: Morgan McCurdy, 21, of Bend; Lacey Satterfield, 22, of Bend; Mary Rosenbalm, 43, of Redmond and Shelley Creswell, 36, of Redmond.
