LaPine -- A LaPine woman died after a one-vehicle crash about 5 p.m. Wednesday on Paulina Lake Road near Newberry Road. Christine L. Furtado, 45, died at the scene, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office.

Furtado appeared to be speeding eastbound and failed to make a curve, leaving the road and hitting two trees, said Sgt. Vance Lawrence.

Her 1994 Blazer was heavily damaged and came to a halt on its top.

Alcohol and speed were both factors in the wreck, Lawrence said.
