A woman died Thursday evening in a wreck on Highway 20 just east of the intersection with Fryrear Road. According to Oregon State Police, a 1992 Ford Explorer driven by April Lois Jegglie, age 39, from Bend, was traveling eastbound on Highway 20 near Fryrear Road on Thursday, May 29, when it crossed the centerline and collided nearly head-on with a westbound 1999 Dodge Dakota pickup occupied by Cody Herburger and Nick Newport of Sisters. After impact, the Ford Explorer continued for a brief distance and then left the highway, rolling over.

Jegglie, who was driving with a suspended operator's license, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nugget freelancers Jim and Sue Anderson witnessed the accident.

"Cody Herburger (driving) and Nick Newport (passenger) in Cody's little black pickup were struck by a lady driving a Ford Explorer going east and who was careening around the curve at an excessive rate of speed and lost control of her vehicle," Sue Anderson reported. "After she hit Cody she flipped on her roof and slid by us and ended up on the opposite embankment."

Firefighters extricated Herburger from the wreck and he was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Newport was treated at the scene. Oregon State Police is continuing to investigate the accident, which blocked the highway for period of time, with traffic rerouted onto Fryrear Road.
