Sisters man cited in rollover crash

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office cited an 18-year-old Sisters man for reckless driving and recklessly endangering others in connection with a single-vehicle rollover crash in the Sisters Industrial Park earlier this month.

The sheriff's office reports that they were dispatched on March 7 at 3:20 p.m. to a crash on Sun Ranch Drive near Camp Polk Road.

The investigation revealed Blake Meany was driving eastbound on Sun Ranch Drive when he attempted to pass a vehicle that was ahead of him. The posted speed for this street is 25 miles per hour.

The separate vehicle was being driven by an adult female driver, whom Meany knew. This female driver had a juvenile male passenger in her vehicle.

Meany was driving approximately 50 miles per hour as he negotiated a curve and attempted to pass the lead vehicle. Meany also passed two adult pedestrians walking dogs on Sun Ranch Drive.

Meany's vehicle left the roadway during the pass and entered the gravel shoulder, which caused his vehicle to slide and eventually roll over onto its passenger side.

Meany had two juvenile male passengers in his vehicle at the time it crashed. Neither Meany nor his passengers were injured. The lead vehicle was not struck by Meany's vehicle.

Medics from the Sisters-Camp Sherman Rural Fire Protection District responded to the scene to evaluate the involved parties. No one was transported.

Meany was cited in lieu of custody for one count of reckless driving and six counts of recklessly endangering another person, and released at the scene. Meany received a separate count of recklessly endangering another person for his two juvenile passengers, the two occupants of the lead vehicle he passed and the two pedestrians he passed.
