TILLER, Ore. — A man from Grants Pass is dead after a single-vehicle crash near the town of Tiller on Sunday, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office (DCSO).

23-year-old Cameron Scott Reese was on a camping trip near the South Umpqua Falls over the weekend. Reese's family called the police at about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday when Reese did not return as planned.

DCSO found that Reese had left his campsite around 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. Around 7:30 p.m. that evening, family members found Reese's vehicle near milepost 8 on South Umpqua Road in Tiller.

When deputies arrived, they found the vehicle about 100 yards over an embankment near the river. Reese was trapped in the vehicle, DCSO said. Although responders attempted life-saving measures, those were unsuccessful.

Reese was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by Tiller Fire Department, Milo Fire Department, Bay Cities Ambulance, REACH Air Ambulance and South Umpqua Steep Angle Rescue.
