CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating a single-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a 17-year-old Medford boy on Sunday afternoon.

Deputies say excessive speed contributed to the crash.

Deputies responded to the 4900-block of North Foothill Road on April 15, 2018, at 2:15 p.m. The driver was the only person in the vehicle, a blue Toyota Camry. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses described seeing the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on North Foothill Road between Corey Road and East Vilas Road. The vehicle drifted into the oncoming lane, and then veered back across the southbound lane and off the roadway. The vehicle struck a tree, rolled over, and came to rest on its top at the edge of an orchard.

An investigator with the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office responded to the location.
