Bend Man Arrested After Highway 97 Wreck

REDMOND, OR -- On Sunday, shortly after 12 noon, a 3-vehicle crash closed Highway 97 just north of Redmond for about a half hour. According to the Sheriff's Office a Chevy Malibu, driven by 59-year-old Daniel Daughs of Bend, drifted into oncoming traffic. A car driven by 43-year-old Anthony Hedgecock of Madras swerved to avoid a collision and instead became wedged under a tractor-trailer rig. A passenger in the car, 32-year-old Heather Summers of Madras, was found lying on the ground with serious injuries. She was taken to St. Charles, Redmond. The Malibu continued north about 5 miles when State Police stopped it. Daughs was charged with DUII, Assualt, Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver, and Reckless Driving. He was taken to jail.
