Prineville woman injured in crash in Redmond
A Prineville woman was injured after crashing her vehicle into a power pole in northwest Redmond on Wednesday afternoon.
According to Deschutes County authorities, deputies were called to the crash scene, at the 3600 block of Northwest 10th Street, just before 4:30 p.m. They had been advised by the reporting party that the vehicle had struck a power pole.
Upon arrival, deputies located a Jeep driven by 69-year-old Bonnie Foster partially in a ditch after going through a fence.
An investigation revealed Foster was driving northbound on 10th Street when she lost control of her vehicle for unknown reasons, went off the roadway and through the fence. She was transported to St. Charles Medical Center-Redmond by paramedics with non-life threatening injuries. Northwest 10th Street was either restricted to one lane of travel or totally blocked for about 45 minutes. Fatigue is believed to be a factor in this crash but speed is not.
Central Electric Cooperative personnel responded to the scene to inspect the power pole, but it was determined to have very minimal damage.
