Andrew Michael Plunkett, 28, of Bend, was arrested and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail after his physical condition was evaluated on scene and he was released by paramedics following the crash at 7:20 p.m., May 18, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office news release stated.

Plunkett was charged with second-degree assault and drunk driving.

Preliminary investigation determined Plunkett was driving east on Bear Creek near Ward Road in a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup when his vehicle drifted across the centerline and struck an oncoming 1999 Mercury Cougar driven by 45-year old Susan Wallace of Bend, deputies said.

Wallace was transported by Bend Fire Paramedics to St. Charles Medical Center with unknown injuries, the news release stated.

Both vehicles sustained what deputies described as substantial damage, and Bear Creek was blocked for about two hours before it was reopened to traffic.

The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office reported.

  • Hey rick duguido is that you? this is the recruiter from the army. havent spoke since we had to reject your application into the army, due to mentall instability, homelessness, long time pill popper/drug dealer, and heavy marijuana usage. It was a shame because america can always use a loser like you in the armed forces. U could have probably gotten us a better deal on morphine. Anyways thought id drop a line, tell your parents hello for me and what a great job they did raising such a gem!

  • Hey Rick D. Are you still homeless? You didn't talk so much smack when you slept in this guy's garage and walked around his place like it was your own. You should've been arrested for breaking an entering...that's what it's called when you don't have permission. You are a moocher and a drunk.The mental hospital must have gotten tired of you. When were you released? How are those psych meds working for you? You're most likely mooching off your mama again since the army rejected you. You should check your own reality before you try to knock someone else.
