Bend man killed in Sisters wreck

A Bend man was killed when his vehicle was rear-ended on Highway 126 at Cloverdale Road just east of Sisters on Christmas Day.

Oregon State Police Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a two-vehicle rear end collision on Highway 126 and Cloverdale Road at approximately 1:15 p.m. on December 25.

According to OSP, the preliminary investigation revealed that a blue 2013 Chevrolet Equinox, operated by David Jackson, age 58, of Bend, was slowing down in preparation for an upcoming left turn, when his vehicle was rear-ended by a maroon 2001 GMC Yukon, operated by Andria Mengucci, 40, of Madras. Jackson was pronounced dead at St Charles Hospital in Bend shortly after 5 p.m. as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.

Multiple passengers from both involved vehicles were transported and treated for non life-threatening injuries. 

Distracted driving is considered to be a contributing factor in this crash, OSP reports. A minor child in the offending vehicle was unrestrained and sustained minor injuries in the crash. 

Highway 126 remained closed for close to two hours following the crash. OSP was assisted by ODOT, Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, Cloverdale, Sisters Black Butte Ranch and Redmond fire personnel.

The ongoing investigation has been referred to the Deschutes County District Attorney's Office.
