BEND, OR -- Oregon State Police have re-opened one lane of Highway 97 four miles north of La Pine after a fatal crash, earlier this morning.  The higway was completely shut down in both directions, after that multi-vehicle crash just before 5:30 a.m.  A detour had routed traffic along Huntington and Burgess Roads, but with flaggers controlling highway traffic, that detour has been deactivated. 

 

OSP confirms one person was killed in the crash, that person's identity has not been released pending next of kin notification.  The driver of a second vehicle, 26-year old Cassy Grant of Bend, was taken to St. Charles Medical Center with minor injuries. 

 

Another head-on crash on Highway 126, three miles east of Powell Butte, closed the eastbound lanes for about an hour Monday morning, as well.
