Chase suspect hospitalized

A 24-year-old Bend resident was hospitalized late Wednesday when he rolled his car while attempting to elude police.

In a news release, police said an officer spotted a white Honda Civic driven by Benjamin R. Watson just before 11 p.m. near the intersection of Southwest Brosterhous Road and Southwest Parrell Road. The officer attempted a traffic stop for an unspecified traffic violation, the release stated, but Watson fled.

The officer chased the Honda at speeds reaching 65 mph, until Watson lost control and rolled his vehicle near the intersection of Southwest Brookswood Boulevard and Rancho Road, according to police.

Watson was taken to St. Charles Bend with serious injuries, and will face charges of felony attempt to elude and reckless driving.
