Two Redmond residents seriously injured in Tuesday morning crash

From Oregon State Police:
On Jan. 10 at about 6:20 a.m., OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a two vehicle crash on Highway 97 near milepost 129. Emergency personnel arrived on scene to find one subject entrapped in a vehicle and two with serious injuries. 

Preliminary investigation revealed, a white 1990 Toyota Corolla had been traveling northbound on Highway 97 north of Bend when it lost control on the icy roadway and collided with a southbound 2000 Dodge pickup. 

The driver of the Toyota, Kimberly BAKER, age 46, and a passenger Kelly SHEHAN, age 34, both from Redmond, were transported by ground ambulance to St. Charles Hospital in Bend for serious injuries resulting from the crash. SHEHAN was entrapped and had to be extricated from the vehicle. 

The driver of the Dodge, Wayde PRATT, age 20, from Sisters and the passengers; Joel PRATT, age 25, from Philomath, and Martin LANGAGER, age 25, from LABANON, were not injured in the crash. 

Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, Bend Fire and Rescue, and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) assisted OSP at the scene. Highway 97 was closed for just over an hour before the Highway was reopened, while the crash investigation was conducted and the Highway was being cleared.
