BEND, OR -- A Bend man is accused of driving under the influence, following an early morning rollover crash on Old Bend Redmond Highway. Deschutes County deputies responded to the crash at about 3 a.m., Monday, and found 26-year-old John Lewis, Jr. standing on the shoulder next to his car.

 

Investigators say Lewis was heading home from downtown Bend, northbound, when he drove about 50 yards on the shoulder, sideswiped a juniper tree and crashed head-on into a rock embankment, flipping his car onto its roof. He was alone in the car and was able to climb out of the vehicle.

 

Lewis was arrested and taken to St. Charles Bend for evaluation. He was cited and released at the hospital for one count of DUII. The road was closed for about 40 minutes during the investigation.
