A vehicle crash on the west side of Sisters Saturday afternoon blocked a portion of U.S. Highway 20 and caused minor injuries for the occupants of one vehicle.

According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, David Elliot, 20, of Sisters, was attempting to cross the highway at Barclay Drive shortly after 12:30 p.m. As he crossed, Elliot’s Volkswagen Bug struck the rear driver’s side tire of an eastbound Toyota Sequoia driven by Brent Wilson, 34, of Bend.

The Toyota spun and rolled over on to the driver’s side, while the Volkswagen came to rest in the middle of the highway.

Wilson and his four passengers were treated for minor injuries and released at the scene, while Elliot was uninjured.

Elliot was cited on suspicion of driving while suspended and driving uninsured. Westbound traffic on the highway was blocked for a short time, the Sheriff’s Office said, while eastbound traffic was diverted around the crash.
