LA PINE, OR -- The La Pine Parks and Recreation building at First and Coach Road was damaged by a car, Tuesday evening. According to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, a 63-year-old man experienced an apparent medical emergency while driving, and crashed his car into the building at about 6:20 p.m.
