PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville woman was hurt in a Friday evening crash, southeast of Prineville.
Witnesses told Crook County deputies 80-year-old Janet Henderson may have become distracted by the two dogs in her car while driving on SE Juniper Canyon Road, just after 5 p.m. Henderson traveled nearly 300 feet on a gravel shoulder before over-correcting and traveling into the oncoming lane. Deputies say she over-corrected again, collided with an embankment and rolled her car onto its top.
Airbags deployed and the dogs were unhurt; however, Henderson was trapped and had to be pulled out by Crook County Fire and Rescue. She was later taken to St. Charles Prineville with unspecified injuries.
