BEND, OR -- An 18-year-old Bend man was arrested for driving under the influence, following a Saturday morning crash. A Deschutes County deputy saw two vehicles speeding on Neff Road, near Hamby, but was unable to catch up with the pair. 

 

Less than 10 minutes later, a passerby called police to report a pickup had crashed into a tree on Alfalfa Market Road; that witness observed the driver leave the scene in another vehicle. 
 
Investigators say the truck appeared to have struck a tree, rolled and then hit another tree. They believe it is one of the two vehicles seen speeding in the area, earlier.
 
Officers later found and arrested Brandon Mehren on DUII charges. His passenger, 18-year-old Alec Jones, was cited for Minor in Possession of alcohol. The crash remains under investigation and more charges are possible.
