No Injuries in Two Powell Butte Crashes



POWELL BUTTE, OR -- Wednesday morning’s dense fog and slick conditions may have contributed to two Crook County crashes during the morning commute, both on Powell Butte Highway.


The first occurred at about 7:45 a.m. Deputies say 52-year-old Sheri Baker, of Bend, failed to negotiate a curve and sideswiped an oncoming car, driven by a Bend man. Baker was issued a citation for failing to drive within her lane and both cars had to be towed from the scene.


The second incident (pictured above) was just after 9 a.m., when 25-year-old Kaylee Stout, of Prineville, reportedly lost control and rolled her SUV when she tried to pass another vehicle.


No one was hurt in either crash.
