The names have now been released of two Sisters residents killed in a crash just before noon on Saturday.  It happened on Hwy 20, about a mile west of Sisters.  23-year-old Austin Jacob McNelis and 18-year-old Kayla Marie Basham died at the scene after a car driven by McNelis swerved to miss a deer and went out of control on the wet pavement.  The eastbound car ended up in the westbound lane and was struck by a pickup truck driven by Andrew Smolich of Bend.  Two occupants of Smolich’s vehicle received minor injuries and were taken to St. Charles-Bend in a private vehicle. Smolich is a manager at Smolich Motors in Bend. Sheriff’s Deputies investigating the crash say that neither alcohol nor speed appear to be a factor.
