BEND, OR -- A Bend woman remained in critical condition, Friday morning, after a deadly day on Bend roadways, earlier in the week. A 60-year-old transient was killed while crossing Highway 97 near Cooley Road, Wednesday morning. Less than 14 hours later, 62-year-old Carolyn Stanfill was struck by a car on Mt. Washington Drive, near the Riverhouse. She suffered life-threatening injuries.
Bend Police Lieutenant Clint Burleigh says it’s important everyone look out for each other, especially this time of year when there is less daylight. "I think the safety part of this - just generally - it's to constantly be aware on the roadway, whether you're a pedestiran, a bicyclist or driving a vehicle. Make sure you're constantly aware of what's going on because the roadways are made for everybody and we just need to make sure to keep the safety of that in mind while we drive down the road, or as we're walking or bicycling down the road."
Both of Wednesday's crashes remain under investigation.
