BEND, OR -- Two Bend women were killed in a crash at Brosterhous and Murphy Road, Sunday morning.  Bend Police say 41-year old Erica Blackwell was speeding eastbound on Murphy Rd., when she failed to stop at the stop sign at Brosterhous Rd.  Blackwell's 2006 Mercedes collided with 55-year old Carla Conners' 2011 Nissan SUV, as she traveled northbound on Brosterhous Rd.  Both women were pronounced dead at the scene, shortly before 8 a.m., Sunday.  Bend PD asks anyone who may have seen either the silver Mercedes or the silver Nissan SUV prior to the crash, to give them a call.  That investigation is ongoing.


Survivors of Friday's double fatal on Powell Butte Highway continue to improve.  Just before 5 p.m., a Honda Accord driven by Richard Patterson crossed the center line and collided with an SUV.  The 21-year old Bend man was flown to St. Charles, where he later died.  The front passenger in the SUV, 65-year old Stephen Harnden of Prineville, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the SUV and a rear passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Patterson's dog was also killed in the crash.  The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate why Patterson crossed the center line.
