Highway 97 in La Pine was closed for several hours overnight while Oregon State Police investigate a traffic crash that killed one pedestrian. Around 10:40 Sunday night, police were called to a report that a pick up had struck Stephen Earl Powell, 68, of La Pine, who was walking in the southbound lane of the highway. The investigation reveals that Stephen Mark Gerrick, 48, from Gilchrest was driving his Dodge pickup southbound on Highway 97 and could not see Powell, as the road was unlit in that area. Police are still investigating why Powell was walking in the roadway.
