TERREBONNE, OR -- A Terrebonne woman admits she fell asleep, causing a crash near Odem Avenue, Wednesday afternoon. Deschutes County investigators say 25-year-old Vanisha Shuey was driving on NW 19th at about 2:15 p.m. when she crossed the center line, went off the road and hit a power pole. Her car then crashed through a barbed wire fence before stopping in a grass field.
Shuey does not have a license and was not hurt. Deputies later arrested her for an unrelated parole violation.
About 300 nearby residents lost electricity for several hours while crews repaired the power pole.
Deputies responded to another crash, about 45 minutes later, at the other end of the county. Two people were hurt at Huntington and State Rec Road in La Pine. Investigators say a 26-year-old Bend woman failed to stop at a stop sign and hit an SUV driven by Rosemarie Trejo Arcos, of La Pine.
Trejo Arcos was trapped inside her car, but was later extricated by fire personnel. She was flown to St. Charles Bend. Stephanie Beutler was treated at the scene for minor injuries and later cited for failing to obey a traffic control device.
