Last updated 7/5/2022 at Noon
Deputies from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a single-vehicle rollover crash involving a downed power line on Cline Falls Highway near the Tumalo Cemetery. The wreck took place Tuesday afternoon, June 28.
Responding deputies arrived to find a 2021 silver Subaru Forester resting on the driver’s side on the southbound shoulder.
The initial investigation determined the Subaru Forester was being driven by a 34-year-old woman. While the Subaru was headed northbound, the driver failed to negotiate a curve just south of the cemetery, crossing the southbound lane of traffic and leaving the roadway, striking a wooden fence and power pole. The woman was ejected from the vehicle during the crash. On scene, medics and deputies provided medical care for the woman, who was later transported to St. Charles Hospital in Bend with serious injuries.
This is an ongoing investigation. Investigators are still determining whether alcohol or speed were a factor in the crash. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office was assisted in the investigation by the Bend Fire Department, the Oregon State Police, Pacific Power, and the Deschutes County Public Works.
