Cow Creek Road Fatal Crash

Douglas Co. Sheriff's Office

RIDDLE, Ore. - A single vehicle crash outside of Riddle Saturday afternoon resulted in a fatality. 

Dispatchers received a report shortly after 2:00 p.m. of a single vehicle crash in the 700-block of Cow Creek Road. Deputies arrived on scene and determined the only occupant of the vehicle was deceased. 

The investigation reveals the driver, 19 year-old Canyonville resident Jacob Collins, was traveling toward Riddle in his 1996 Ford Ranger pickup when he lost control and left the roadway, rolling the pickup. The crash is believed to have occurred sometime in the night or during the morning hours. Speed appears to be a contributing factor. 

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by Bay Cities Ambulance and Riddle Fire Department.
