BEND, OR -- A Bend man suspected of drunk driving was seriously hurt in a crash, near Deschutes Junction. At about 2:45 Monday afternoon, a witness called Deschutes County Dispatch to report seeing a bike come out of the bed of a pickup, as it drove south on Highway 97 from Redmond. A second caller reported the vehicle was crossing into oncoming traffic.

 

According to the Sheriff’s Office, a deputy caught up with the suspect and activated his overhead emergency lights, but the driver failed to pull over, and allegedly nearly hit an ODOT road worker as it approached Deschutes Junction. The pickup then left the road at highway speeds and crashed. 
 
Medics took 56-year-old Greg Willis to the hospital for treatment of what first appeared to be minor injuries. He was later admitted to the hospital with serious injuries. Willis faces charges of DUII, Felony Driving While Suspended and Reckless Endangerment of a Highway Worker.
