MADRAS, OR -- Oregon State Police say fatigue was a contributing factor in a single-vehicle crash that tied up traffic in Madras during the Tuesday morning commute.
According to OSP, the 16-year-old driver from Antelope, Oregon was southbound on Highway 97 when she crossed into oncoming traffic near the intersection with Highway 26. She drove off the road and hit a power pole, sending live power lines onto the roadway.
Highway 97 was closed for about an hour while utility crews removed the power lines. The driver suffered only minor injuries.
