LA PINE, OR -- A chain-reaction crash shut down Highway 97 south of Bend for about an hour Sunday afternoon, and sent three people to the hospital. 

 

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the 16-year-old driver of a pickup lost control on the icy highway at about 1:30 p.m. He crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a northbound pickup. The teen was pushed into the guardrail then back onto the highway where it struck a Dodge Challenger, head on. 

 
Another car hit a guardrail while trying to avoid the crash. The teen driver and his 14-year-old passenger were taken by ambulance to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Challenger, a 39-year-old Bend man, went to the hospital by private vehicle.
