BEND, OR -- It's been a deadly week on Central Oregon highways. An 84-year-old man was killed Tuesday morning when his SUV drove off Old Bend Redmond Highway. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says Frank Farey was northbound just before 10:30 a.m., when he failed to negotiate a curve, drove off the road through a fence and hit a large juniper tree. 
He was taken to St. Charles Bend where he later died. Investigators don’t believe slick roads, speed, drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash. 

A Redmond woman involved in a crash, last week, has died of her injuries. Oregon State Police say 75-year-old Anita Johnson was slowing for traffic on Highway 97, last Thursday, when her car was hit from behind by a semi loaded with gravel. Her vehicle was pushed off the road and into a tree. OSP learned she passed away over the weekend.
