DESCHUITES COUNTY, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office gave a public thanks to a sergeant who helped a passenger in a crash from being run over by a pickup. Police say the wreck last Wednesday on Tumalo Road near Swalley Road was being investigated when a pickup began sliding toward a stuck vehicle. A passenger from the stuck vehicle got out and saw the pickup sliding toward him and tried to run, but fell down. Sergeant James McLaughlin ran between the two vehicles and grabbed the passenger under the armpits as the man was under the truck and about to be crushed. McLaughlin was able to free the man just before the two vehicles collided. No one was injured.
