DESCHUTES COUNTY, OR -- A Redmond woman was killed in a wreck on Highway 97 just before noon yesterday.

Dent collided with an ODOT Incident Response Vehicle and died at the scene. The driver of the ODOT vehicle, 38 year old John Benson, was taken to Saint Charles Redmond with minor injuries. It took until about 4-o’clock to get all lanes of the highway re-opened.
