On 11/30/18 at 03:45 hours, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Sisters Fire Department personnel were dispatched Hwy 126 near Willow Lane just east of Sisters for a report of a single vehicle into a tree.

Upon arrival, deputies located the Dodge pickup which had come to rest blocking both lanes of travel.   Sisters Fire Department paramedics evaluated the driver, Mackenzie, and transported him via ground ambulance to SCMC - Redmond for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. 

The investigation revealed Mackenzie was traveling westbound on Hwy 126 when he lost control of his pickup on the slick roadway. The pickup left the roadway, struck a tree and came to rest blocking both lanes of travel.  Deputies are still investigating possible contributing factors to the crash.

Highway 126 was either restricted to one lane or totally blocked for about an hour.
