Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies say they are investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that happened on Highway 62 early Saturday morning. One passenger died while the driver and second passenger were taken to the hospital. 

Just before 2:30am, deputies say dispatch received a 911 call of a crash on Highway 62 just south of Brophy Way. A northbound 2017 Honda Accord sedan left the roadway and crashed into the back of a semi-truck trailer parked on the shoulder.

A 25-year-old Shady Cove woman riding in the front passenger seat was partially ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. Investigators say she was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver, Cody Dylan Lowe, 24, of Shady Cove, was transported to Rogue Regional Medical Center (RRMC) for treatment for a possible arm fracture and other minor injuries. He was wearing a seat belt.

The back seat passenger, Tyler Robert Van Houten, 25, of Shady Cove, was transported to RRMC for treatment for minor injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt.

JCSO detectives, a medical examiner investigator, and members of the Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction (STAR) team responded. At the time of the crash, the roadway was not affected by ice or other weather-related conditions. Deputies are investigating whether impairment contributed to the crash.

The identity of the decedent will be released at a later time to allow family and friends to be notified.
