Bend woman killed in crash on Century Drive

A 74-year-old Bend woman was killed Thursday morning in a two-car crash on Century Drive near Mt. Bachelor Village.

Bend Police said an SUV and pickup with a trailer were involved in the crash, which happened just before noon.

Police said the driver of the SUV, Kathleen Sue Case, suffered fatal injuries due to the impact of the crash.

Case was trying to turn east onto Century Drive from East Campbell Road when her 2010 Nissan Armada was hit.

The driver and two passengers from the pickup provided emergency medical care immediately after the crash.

All three occupants of the pickup were medically trained, according to Bend Police.

The crash closed the road for about three hours, forcing downhill traffic from Mt. Bachelor to reroute through Sunriver. The road reopened around 2:45 p.m.

Police said investigators have ruled out speed and intoxication as factors in the crash.
