Location: Hamby Road / Butler Market Road

On Nov. 20, at approximately 0955 hours, deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office and officers with the Bend Police Department were dispatched to a report of a single vehicle rollover crash at the intersection of Butler Market Road and Hamby Road in Bend. The driver of the Ford Ranger, Cody Bean of Redmond, was trapped inside the vehicle as a result of the crash. 

An investigation at the scene determined Bean was driving southbound on Butler Market Road approaching the intersection with Hamby Road. A second vehicle was stopped on Hamby Road facing north, preparing to turn westbound onto Butler Market Road. This three way intersection is controlled with stop signs at Hamby Road facing north and Butler Market Road facing east. Southbound Butler Market Road is not controlled and has the right of way at the intersection. 

The northbound facing vehicle failed to yield right of way and turned into the path of Bean's southbound Ford Ranger. Bean swerved to avoid the vehicle to vehicle collision, but then lost control of his pickup and rolled onto the roadway shoulder. 

The Bend Fire Department extricated Bean from his vehicle by removing the roof of the Ford Ranger. Bean was then transported to the St. Charles Medical Center Bend with unknown injuries. 

The other vehicle, described as a dark colored passenger car, left the scene. 

This investigation is ongoing. The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may information on the second vehicle or witnessed the crash and hasn't been interviewed, to call into non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911 and speak to a deputy. Reference case 17-359048
