Two people received minor injuries Monday afternoon during a two-car crash on highway 97 and a state rec road near La Pine. Oregon State Police Senior Trooper Tim Holbrook says around 2:30 p.m., a pickup driven by Steven C. Leake, 20, from Tucson, Arizona was northbound on Highway 97 when a 2006 Ford Explorer pulled out from the west side of the intersection into the path of the pickup. The Dodge pickup collided into the driver side of the Ford Explorer driven by Howard F. Snider, 84, from Stayton. Both vehicles traveled off the east side shoulder and the Ford Explorer came to rest on its top. Both drivers were taken to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend with minor injuries. They were using safety restraints and airbags deployed on both vehicles. A 32-year old male passenger in the Dodge pickup was not injured. Snider was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.
