  • 11:30 a.m. An Oregon Department of Transportation employee likely saved the life of a 71-year-old Talent woman who apparently spent the night in her crashed car in a ravine off Old Highway 99, Oregon State Police said.
    Doyle Summers was doing routine maintenance along the old highway near the Siskiyou Summit when a glint of sunlight off something down a steep, brushy slope caught his eye this morning. A closer look showed the light had reflected off a car’s bumper and he went down to check on it.
    Summers found Lois Evelyn Hamilton unresponsive inside her car. He could see she was breathing, so he called 911, summoning help to the mountainside.
    Rescuers pulled Hamilton to safety and she was taken to a local hospital.
