News Release
Non-Injury Rollover Motor Vehicle Accident (Photo) - 11/04/19


Non-Injury Rollover Motor Vehicle Accident


Released by:          Sgt. K. Dizney

Release Date:        11/4/19


Driver #1:                Freel, Corena Jean             Age:  30

Vehicle #1:              2003 Ford XST Pickup; Yellow





On Monday, 110419, at approximately 0823 hours, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to reported roll over motor vehicle accident on Highway 20 one mile east of Sisters.  Several deputies from the sheriff’s office responded with the first deputies arriving within minutes.  Deputies located a yellow Ford XST pickup on the north side of the road resting on its driver’s side.  Deputies also located the driver and passenger of the vehicle and determined they suffered no injuries.


An investigation into the crash at this time has determined that the pickup driver, Corena Freel, was traveling behind another SUV type vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 20.  The SUV began to slow to conduct a right hand turn into a driveway.  Freel was not able to slow down behind the SUV and was forced to attempt to drive around the SUV while crossing the center line of the highway.  This caused the pickup to lose control, and drive off the north side of the roadway.  The vehicle rolled multiple times before coming to rest on its side. 


This accident is still under investigation to determine if speed, distracted driving, or following too close as causes for the crash.  Drugs / Alcohol are not believed to be involved factors at this time. 


This crash temporarily closed both lanes of travel for approximately 5-10 minutes to assist with the investigation and medical services.  The sheriff’s office was assisted with this crash by Sisters Fire and ODOT.
