MADRAS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Jefferson County authorities on Wednesday identified a 20-year-old Madras man killed Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash that also brought drunken driving charges against the 17-year-old driver.
The crash, which also injured the other occupants, was reported just after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday along Northwest Columbia Drive near Fir Lane, Sheriff Jim Adkins said.
The car carrying the driver and three passengers left the road, damaged a power pole and overturned in a field, Undersheriff Marc Heckathorn said.
