SUNRIVER, Ore. (AP) - A driver died south of Bend near Sunriver after another motorist rear-ended his vehicle and both crashed into trees along U.S. 97.

Multiple news agencies report 56-year-old Brian Harris of Bend was driving north when he was hit around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.

The crash remains under police investigation. It’s not clear what led to the initial crash.
