From Oregon State Police

On Thursday at approximately 7:00 a.m. OSP troopers responded to a vehicle that was in the southbound ditch on Highway 101 near milepost 161. Prior to responding the OSP Northern Command Center received a driving complaint on the same vehicle. When OSP troopers and emergency responders arrived they located a gray Jeep Cherokee, driven by GEORGE HENCK, age 84, from Waldport, in the ditch on the southbound side of the highway. OSP troopers noted that there was very little damage to HENCK’S vehicle.

HENCK was initially responsive after emergency responders arrived. As HENCK was assisted from his vehicle he became unresponsive. Emergency responders began life saving measures without success. HENCK was pronounced deceased at the location by emergency responders. OSP troopers and the Lincoln County Medical Examiner’s Office are continuing the investigation. Investigators believe that HENCK suffered an unknown medical issue not related to driving off the highway and into the ditch.
