BEND, OR -- A Redmond teen was hurt in a crash that tied up traffic for several hours on Old Bend Redmond Highway, Wednesday. Alexandra Spencer’s SUV was struck by a semi at Tumalo Road, just after noon.


The California trucker told investigators he was eastbound on Tumalo Road when his brakes suddenly failed and he couldn't stop at a stop sign. After hitting the SUV, the tractor portion of the semi went through a fence, nearly striking a man working in a nearby field before coming to rest in a pasture. The trailer blocked the road for several hours.


Spencer was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Sheriff's deputies cited the trucker for reckless driving; he was unhurt. ODOT is assessing the semi, but a preliminary inspection determined the brakes were out of adjustment, which may have contributed to the crash.
