July 20, 2014
VIDA: Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into an early Sunday morning single vehicle traffic crash that resulted in the death of a 40-year old woman along Highway 126 about four miles east of Vida. The victim's name will be released later this morning to allow next of kin added time for notifications.
On July 20, 2014, at approximately 2:00 a.m., OSP was notified of a single vehicle traffic crash on Highway 126 near milepost 30. McKenzie Fire & Rescue personnel arrived on the scene and confirmed an adult female was deceased.
Preliminary investigation indicates the white 1993 Toyota Camry was traveling eastbound negotiating a right curve when it crossed the centerline. The car's driver over-corrected and the car began to spin, crossing the highway and crashing into a ditch on the north side of the road.
There are no known witnesses other than the person who spotted the crash at 1:45 a.m. after it happened.
OSP troopers from the Springfield Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Trooper Evan Sether is the lead investigator. Anyone who saw the vehicle traveling between Springfield and Vida between midnight and 1:45 a.m. is asked to contact Trooper Sether at (541) 726-2536 ext 439.
