Passenger suffers head injury in Sisters area crash
by Cheryl McDermott

SISTERS, Ore. – A Redmond man who was a passenger in a pickup that crashed into a rock wall on Highway 126W about five miles east of Sisters, Oregon, late Sunday morning sustained a non-life threatening head injury, deputies reported.

According to a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office news release prepared by Sgt. Chad Davis and Deputy Dustin Miller, deputies responded to a report of a single vehicle crash near Quail Tree Lane about 10:50 a.m., May 18.

Preliminary investigation determined that a 1995 Ford Ranger pickup driven by Gustavo Valencia Delgado, 35, of Redmond, had crashed into a rock wall on the north side of Highway 126W after Delgado drifted onto the highway shoulder and over-corrected.

Deputies found the passenger, 34-year old Redmond resident Albert Andrade-Garcia, lying on the ground outside the vehicle, which was found facing eastbound in the westbound slow traffic lane, Sgt. Davis said.

Andrade-Garcia was transported to St. Charles Medical Center in Redmond by Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire paramedics with what the sheriff’s office described as a non-life threatening head injury.

Delgado sustained only minor injuries and did not require hospital transport, the news release stated. He was not issued a citation, the sergeant said.

Oregon State Police Troopers and Oregon Department of Transportation personnel assisted on scene. Only one lane of traffic was open for about ½ hour while crash debris and the vehicle were removed from the scene.
