BROTHERS, OR -- A Burns woman was killed in a crash near Brothers, Thursday afternoon. Deschutes County deputies say 78-year-old Dorothy Elwood was westbound on Highway 20, just before 1:30 p.m., when her Jeep Cherokee veered right, driving over over dirt, sagebrush and rock. When it crossed a raised dirt road, the Jeep went airborne; after landing, it rolled over and came to a stop.


Despite life-saving measures attempted by citizens who stopped to help and first responders, Elwood was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash remains under investigation; alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors.

 

The highway was closed intermittently during the investigation. Deputies were assisted at the scene by Bend Fire, Airlink and ODOT.
