Sisters teen in critical condition after wreck
    Sisters High School student Logan Miller is in critical condition at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend after suffering head injuries in a wreck on Highway 20 on Wednesday morning.
    There is guarded optimism about 16-year-old Miller's condition, given the severity of his injuries. Sisters High School Principal Joe Hosang reported that though "the doctors seem to be very careful with how they talk about Logan's recovery ... they state he is where they would hope that he would be."
    Oregon State Police reported that Miller was driving a Ford pickup westbound around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, January 6, when he lost control on the icy road. The truck crossed the center line and struck the driver's side of an eastbound Toyota driven by Nathaniel Pixler, 32, of Redmond.
    Troopers said Pixler's pickup rolled on the eastbound shoulder, while Miller's pickup traveled in the oncoming lane until it was hit in the driver's side door by a GMC pickup towing a flatbed trailer, driven by Michael Sterkel, 50, of Troutdale.
    Pixler was also injured and was treated and released.
    Further information, including information on how the community can support the Miller family, will be forthcoming.
