A Bend man was killed Wednesday morning in a single-vehicle rollover crash near Sunriver, Oregon State Police said Thursday. Troopers believe the road conditions were a major contributor to the crash.
The crash happened at about 6:25 a.m. near milepost 154 between Vandevert Road and S. Century Drive.
OSP said its preliminary investigation found that a grey Jeep Wrangler driven by the 54-year-old, was headed north when it lost control, left the road and ended up in a ditch.
The Jeep began to roll, OSP said. The driver was ejected and the Jeep came to a rest on top of him.
The driver was declared dead at the scene.
OSP said road conditions were a major factor in the crash, but didn’t give specifics. Some areas of Central Oregon had snow and below-freezing temperatures Wednesday morning.
