Crash Claims the Life of Days Creek Man - 02/17/21

DAYS CREEK, Ore. - A 78 year-old man died Tuesday morning in a traffic crash on Ferguson Lane in Days Creek. 

Shortly before 11:30 am on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle crash in the 500-block of Ferguson Lane. Information provided by the 9-1-1 caller reported that a pickup had left the roadway and was partially in the river. 

When deputies arrived on scene, they located a 2000 Toyota Tacoma that had left the roadway for an unknown reason and rolled down the steep embankment. The vehicle was lying on its side partially in the waterway. When fire and EMS crews arrived, they removed the driver, identified as 78 year-old John Albert Boone of Days Creek, from the pickup and declared him deceased at the scene.

Boone was the only occupant in the vehicle and was found to not be wearing a safety belt.
