A Bend man and a Madras woman remained in the hospital Sunday night following a rollover wreck early Saturday morning near Redmond.

The driver, Earnest Hackett, 25, was in fair condition, and the passenger, Breanne Ward, 24, was in serious condition, said a nursing supervisor at St. Charles Bend.

Hackett was driving fast around 5 a.m. Saturday on Northwest Way when he failed to make a curve and the red 2005 Dodge Neon he was driving tumbled down a 10- to 20-foot embankment, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

While Hackett was able to free himself, emergency crews from the Redmond Fire Department had to pull Ward from the wrecked car.
