PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County Search and Rescue responded to the Maury Mountains last Friday evening, after a driver got stuck in the mud. The person called 911 at about 8:45 p.m., but no return call was possible, due to cell coverage in the area. GPS coordinates from the call showed that they were in on the 1750 Road.
The Crook County Sheriff's Office says the driver got caught in a heavy localized rainstorm and the vehicle became stuck in mud and water. The people in the car had food and water and were prepared to make it through the night, if necessary.
Crook County SAR was notified and nine personnel responded with four vehicles including the side-by-side. The stranded motorists and their dog were located on the 1750 road and brought to Prineville.
