MILLICAN, OR -- One person was killed in a fiery Crook County crash, Monday morning. Passing drivers called 911 after discovering a 1995 Cadillac on its top, just off George Millican Road, about 20 miles south of Prineville. They reported fuel was leaking from the burning car and despite using a fire extinguisher to battle the blaze, they were unable to get to the person inside. 

 

When State Troopers and Sheriff’s deputies arrived, the vehicle was fully engulfed and flames were spreading to nearby trees and brush. 
 
Investigators have yet to identify the driver and believe speed was a contributing factor in the crash.
