Friday evening emergency personnel responded to a single vehicle crash on Hwy 101 near milepost 290 along Oregon’s south coast.
Reports say that a 2006 Chevrolet Aveo, operated by John Figura (26) of Port Orford, was southbound on Hwy 101 when it traveled off the roadway, rolled, and struck a telephone pole.
The passenger in the vehicle, Natalie Wilson (24) from Port Orford, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Figura was transported to the hospital in Gold Beach with non-life threatening injuries.
Driver fatigue (sleep) is thought to be a contributing factor in the crash.
