PRINEVILLE, OR -- Three people were hurt in a late-night crash in Crook County, Thursday. Investigators don’t yet know why 19-year-old Jacob Hardy lost control of his SUV, but they say he swerved from shoulder to shoulder on Davis Loop for about 450 feet before flipping the vehicle.
Hardy was ejected; his two passengers, ages 16- and 22-years-old, were also injured. Several people stopped to help Hardy before emergency crews arrived. The driver and his two passengers were all taken to the Prineville hospital.
Davis Loop was closed for about an hour, following the 11 p.m. incident. Deputies say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
