A fatal head-on crash on highway 97, a couple miles south of the junction with highway 58, closed the highway for 4 hours last night.  State Police report a white Jeep was traveling southbound when it drifted onto the shoulder. The driver reportedly overcorrected and spun into the oncoming lane colliding with a California couple driving a pickup towing a travel trailer. The couple in the truck were transported to Bend and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. However, the driver of the Jeep, identified only as a Bend area resident, was pronounced dead at the scene. Distracted driving and speed are believed to be factors in the crash.
