A 30-year old Redmond man was arrested for drunk driving when he rolled his pickup in a single vehicle crash in southwest Redmond early Saturday morning. The driver also was allegedly in unlawful possession of a firearm, said authorities.
Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies and Redmond Fire & Ambulance personnel responded to the scene of the crash on Highland Avenue near SW 13th Street about 1:45 a.m. December 23, wrote Sergeant Dan Bilyeu and Deputy Justin Alps in a news release.
When they arrived, they found a 1999 Ford Ranger blocking Highland Avenue, in an upright position after crashing and rolling.
