Two injured in Terrebonne crash

Two people were injured Sunday afternoon in a two-car crash in Terrebonne, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. Troy Gotchy said the crash happened around 2:40 at the intersection of Northwest Way and Coyner avenue when a Ford F150 collided with a Mazda M3.

Dispatch advised both vehicles had sustained major damage, both drivers were injured, and the female driver was trapped in her vehicle.

The Redmond Fire Department cut the driver’s side door from the Mazda, and 38-year-old Vanessa Klingensmith was safely removed from the Mazda.  Klingensmith and the driver of the truck, 69-year-old John Smith of Redmond, were taken to St. Charles in Redmond with non-life threatening injuries.  A minor child in the vehicle with Klingensmith was not injured, Gotchy said.

The sheriff’s office said Klingensmith wassouth bound on Northwest Way and Smith was northbound on Northwest Way.  Smith attempted to turn west bound on to Coyner Avenue and struck Klingensmith’s vehicle on the driver’s side.  The crash blocked the intersection for about an hour until the vehicles could be removed from the scene.  Alcohol is not a factor in this crash.  Smith was cited for making a dangerous left turn, Gotchy said.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Redmond Fire Department and the Oregon State Police.
