Crook County deputy crashes patrol pickup


A Crook County sheriff’s deputy escaped injury Friday evening when he crashed his patrol pickup truck on the way to a medical call on the Crooked River Highway, deputies said.

The crash occurred around 5:40 p.m. on Highway 27 about 22 miles south of Prineville as Deputy Adam Neider responded to a medical call on the highway around milepost 19, said Sgt. Travis Jurgens.

Neider was heading north on the highway when he failed to negotiate a corner and his pickup left the east side of the road, Jurgens said.

The deputy then over-corrected, causing the pickup to return to the road, and he over-corrected again, causing it to again leave the road and roll one time, coming to rest on its wheels, partly blocking the northbound lane, Jurgens said.

Neider, who had been wearing his seat belt, was examined at the scene by Crook County Fire and Rescue medics, but was unhurt, Jurgens said.

Oregon State Police conducted the on-scene investigation, the sergeant said, adding that no citations were issued.
