BEND, OR -- Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel was involved in a crash, Thursday evening, at NW 11th and Portland Ave. According to Bend Police, Hummel was northbound on 11th when an eastbound SUV failed to stop at a stop sign, and the two vehicles collided, at about 6:30 p.m.
Jeffrey Hewes, of Battle Ground, Washington, told officers he was using his navigation system to find a house and didn't see the stop sign. Hewes was cited for his role in the crash.
An adult passenger in Hewes' vehicle was taken by ambulance to St. Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries. Four children and Hewes were unhurt. Hummel was treated at the scene and released, although sources tell KBND News he was later treated at the hospital for injuries he sustained in the crash.
Both vehicles were severely damaged and were towed from the scene.
