PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Madras woman was injured in a Saturday morning crash, in Prineville. When Crook County deputies responded to the NW Madras Highway (Highway 26) just after 5:30 a.m., they found a minivan off the road with significant damage.
Investigators believe 41-year-old Jacquelynn Briggs was southbound when she drifted off the highway, crashed through a fence and hit a juniper tree, uprooting it. The van rolled at least twice on its nose before landing right-side up. They found about 200-feet worth of fencing was damaged by the impact.
Briggs was wearing her seatbelt and all airbags deployed. She was taken to St. Charles Prineville with non-life threatening injuries. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors; the crash remains under investigation.
