BEND, OR -- A Bend woman faces several charges, including drunk driving, after an early morning head-on collision on Highway 97. Deschutes County Deputies initially responded to several reports of a dark sedan driving southbound in the northbound lanes of the Bend Parkway at Pinebrook Blvd, just after 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Before Deputies arrived, 60-year-old Beverly Marsden collided with a northbound vehicle, driven by Merle Brubaker, of La Pine. Investigators say Marsden appeared impaired and was unaware of the divided highway. She's charged with DUII, Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering and Assault IV. No injuries were reported, but both vehicles sustained substantial damage.
