JASON CHANEY/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - A 17-year-old male was driving a Honda Accord Tuesday afternoon when a truck pulled out and collided with him. No one was injured.

No one was injured in a collision Tuesday afternoon at the Highway 126 and O'Neil Highway intersection.

According to a report by Crook County Sheriff's Office Detective Mitch Madden, at 2:02 p.m., deputies from the CCSO and officers from the Prineville Police Department responded to a two-vehicle motor vehicle crash that was blocking the intersection.

An investigation determined that 67-year-old Gary Rexroad, of Culver, was operating a 1995 Chevy Silverado when he made a left turn onto Highway 126 from O'Neil Highway. As Rexroad turned onto the highway, he collided with a 1992 Honda Accord, being operated by a 17-year-old juvenile male, that was traveling west on Highway 126.

Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash and denied having any injuries.

Rexroad was issued a citation for failure to obey a traffic control device.

The Oregon Department of Transportation assisted the Sheriff's Office and Police Department.
