BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a Corvallis man failed to stop at a stop sign, leading to a crash that tied up traffic on Neff Road during much of Friday's morning commute.
Emergency crews responded to Neff Road, near Pilot Butte Middle School just after 7 a.m. They found two cars heavily damaged and 59-year-old Kerry Schoning hurt. Investigators believe Schoning was southbound on Shepard Road, when he he turned onto Neff without stopping. He collided with an SUV driven by a 35-year old Bend man.
Schoning was taking to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Neither alcohol nor speed are believed to be factors in the crash.
