Two Las Vegas residents were hurt early Friday morning when the moving truck they driving overturned in Crook County.
According to the Crook County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched just after midnight to a reported injury rollover crash at SW George Millican Road at SW Reservoir Road. Initial reports said it was a one-vehicle crash and two people were injured.
When deputies arrived, a 30 foot “Enterprise Rent a Car” box truck was found lying on its side, blocking SW George Millican Road just south of the intersection with SW Reservoir Road. At the time of the crash the box truck was loaded with personal belongings, which had been scattered as a result of the crash.
Sgt. Mitch Madden said 26-year-old Antwyone Brown of Las Vegas was driving the truck south on SW George Millican Road when he left the road and rolled the truck on to its side. Brown and his passenger, 33-year-old Victoire Parthou of North Las Vegas, were injured and taken by ambulance to St. Charles in Bend with non-life threatening injuries.
The area was covered in dense fog at the time of the crash, Madden said, and that might have contributed to the crash. No citations were issued.
The Crook County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Deschutes Towing, Oregon State Police, Bend Fire & Rescue, and the Crook County Road Department. SW George Millican Road south of SW Reservoir Road was reduced to one lane for about three hours while the box truck and debris were cleared.
The Crook County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind drivers to slow down during adverse weather conditions especially when visibility is limited.
