Fatal collision on S. Canal Blvd. near Redmond Wednesday

A Redmond woman was killed Wednesday night after her car collided head-on with a pickup south of the city, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) said Thursday.

It happened around 4:15 p.m. on SW Canal Blvd., south of Helmholtz Way and north of 61st Street.

DCSO said the Redmond woman, 30, was driving a 2017 Ford Fusion southbound on Canal. Witnesses reportedly said she was in the oncoming lane for unknown reasons.

The Fusion collided head-on with a Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 42-year-old Bend man.

The woman died at the scene despite the efforts of firefighters and paramedics. The Silverado driver was not hurt and DCSO said he cooperated fully with investigators.

The road was closed for two hours for the investigation.

Police have not announced the identity of the woman.
