Sheriff: Car crash claims life of Winston man

GLENDALE, Ore. -- A 53-year-old Winston man is dead after a single vehicle crash Monday morning in Glendale.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says that just before 10:00 a.m., deputies were called to respond to a single vehicle accident.

When deputies arrived, they found the lone occupant of a Geo Metro deceased at the scene. He was identified as Michael Ray Porter, 53, of Winston.

Officials say the vehicle was heading eastbound around a corner on Rueben Road when for an unknown reason it veered off the road, over a small embankment and collided with some trees.

The Sheriff's office says next of kin has been notified.
