A La Pine woman and her toddler son were seriously injured in a near head-on crash on Highway 58, Saturday afternoon. Oregon State Police investigators say 66-year old Sharon Stephens of Albany lost control and collided with a minivan, driven by 37-year old Tammy Mischke of La Pine.
Mischke and her 2-year old son were taken by ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center Bend with serious injuries. Stephens was taken to Riverbend hospital in Springfield, also with serious injuries.
OSP continues to investigate, but believes speed and slushy roads are responsible for the crash. Everyone involved was wearing seatbelts.
