On Dec. 11, at 1:48 p.m., deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Northwest 43rd Street and Northwest Lower Bridge Drive, on Crooked River Ranch. The crash involved two vehicles and an ambulance was needed at the scene.
Deputies arrived to find the driver of a white Pontiac Sunfire, Cynthia K. Marshall, 58, of Crooked River Ranch, inside her vehicle and unable to get out of her vehicle. Redmond Fire and Crooked River Ranch Fire responded and worked quickly to extricate Marshall from her vehicle.
Marshall was then transported by a Crooked River Ranch Fire and Rescue ambulance to St. Charles Redmond with serious injuries.
An investigation determined Marshall was stopped at the stop sign on Northwest 43rd Street, waiting for an approaching westbound vehicle from the east. As the approaching westbound vehicle slowed and prepared to turn onto Northwest 43rd, Marshall pulled away from the stop sign to make an eastbound turn, but did not see a second westbound vehicle.
Marshall pulled out into the path of a Toyota Corolla driven by Quentin R. Johnson, 20, of Redmond. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage in the crash and needed to be towed from the scene.
A traffic citation was issued to Marshall for failing to obey a traffic control device.
