On December 11, 2018,  the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into Eric Jonsson.

Johnson.  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 (Stop Sign).  The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the citizens who stopped and rendered assistance until deputies and fire personnel arrived at the crash.

Family Rescued in Stuck Vehicle (Photo) - 12/10/18

Released by:          Deputy Jim Whitcomb Assistant SAR Coordinator

Occurred:               Sunday, 12/0918, at 2010 hours

Location:                2.5 miles East of East Lake

Stuck Motorists:           Smith, Soren 24 yom Bend, OR

                                    Bissada-Smith, 54 yof Bend, OR

                                   17 and 13 year old juveniles, Bend, OR

                                  

 

Narrative:

On 12/09/2018, at about 2010 hours, Deschutes County 911 received a call from a stuck motorist, who reported he and his family were stuck in the snow near East Lake. The reporting person and operator of the vehicle, Soren Smith, advised he and three family members to include two juveniles had gone to the area to cut a Christmas tree and had gotten stuck in their 4x4 pickup. Smith’s intention was to drive on FS road 21 past East Lake to go home after finding their Christmas tree earlier on the 9710 road. Smith advised they left home at about 1530 hours and become stuck at about 1945 hours. Smith believed they would be able to stay warm since the vehicle had a half tank of gas and they were dressed for the weather, had water with them, but no extra food. The snow depth was reported to be about a foot and a half and it was currently snowing. The family had not brought shovels or any other implement to assist them after becoming stuck in the snow.

 

A Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Deputy responded to the area with a patrol pickup towing a trailer with a tracked ATV. The Deputy trailered the tracked ATV as far as possible at which point the ATV was deployed. The Deputy then traveled in the tracked ATV the remaining distance of about 4 miles before arriving at Smith’s vehicle at about 0015 hours the next morning.  Smith’s vehicle was located about 2.5 miles east of East Lake and Smith advised it had snowed about 3 more inches since he had become stuck. The family members and their dog were transported in the ranger back to the patrol pickup and then were provided a curtesy transport to their residence.

 

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office would like to remind those traveling in the backcountry that several Forest Service roads are closed during the winter season. If you are planning on traveling on backcountry roads that may have snow on them (no matter the depth) it is recommended to possess traction tires and/or tire chaines, shovels and/or other implements to help free you if you become stuck as well as the 10 Essentials for wilderness survival in case you are forced to spend the night in your vehicle.  Please refer to the following weblinks for up to date road closures:

Car Fire Leads to DUII Arrest (Photo) - 11/27/18

MEDIA RELEASE  

Car Fire Leads to DUII Arrest

 

Released by:          Sgt. Kevin Dizney

Occurred:               Monday, 11/26/18, at 1939 hours

Location:                Highway 20 at Bend Redmond Highway

Arrested:                 Larson, Brian  Age:  56  Bend, Oregon

           

NARRATIVE:         

On Monday, 11/26/18, at approximately 1939 hours, two Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputies located a vehicle fire off the roadway down an approximate 10 foot embankment at the corner of Highway 20 and Old Bend-Redmond Highway.  Deputies observed a citizen passerby pulling a man away from the car that was now becoming fully involved in fire and catching trees and brush in the area ablaze. 

Deputies assisted the citizen in pulling the driver, later identified as Brian Larson, away from the burning vehicle and determined there were no other occupants in the vehicle.  The Bend Fire Department responded and put the fire out. 

An investigation determined that Larson, operating a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, left the roadway on Highway 20 for unknown reasons causing his vehicle to drive down the embankment at likely low speed before becoming stuck on a dirt mound in the vacant lot at this location.  The citizen that rescued Larson observed Larson was in the driver’s seat with the tires spinning.  As the citizen attempted contact with Larson, he observed the vehicle catch fire by unknown cause.  Without the fast action by this citizen to remove Larson from the vehicle, this incident could have ended in a fatality. 

Deputies determined that Larson was heavily intoxicated with alcohol and after confirming he was not injured from the fire or driving off the roadway, was arrested for DUII and lodged at the Deschutes County Jail.  Larson’s vehicle was heavily damaged due to fire and was removed from the scene. 

The cause of how or why Larson drove off the roadway is still being investigated.  Speed does not appear to be a factor in this drive-off.  Traffic was light in the area at this time and also does not appear to have any influence in this incident.
