1 person injured after truck rolls on Highway 97 near Terrebonne


One person was seriously injured Monday just before 3 p.m. in a car crash near Terrebonne, according to Oregon State Police. 

Oregon State Police said a Honda driven by 49-year-old Eric Jackson was going north on Highway 97 near the Rex Barber Bridge when it was passed by a Nissan Titan, driven by 76-year-old Larry Peters, in a no passing zone. The Nissan cut back into the lane and side-swiped the Honda. The Nissan spun off the road and into the ditch before rolling several times. 

Peters was extracted from the Nissan by responders and was transported by air to St. Charles with serious injuries. The highway was partially closed for an hour before reopening.
