WHEELER COUNTY, OR -- A 31-year-old Prineville man was killed in a weekend crash just west of Mitchell. Oregon State Police say Scotty Ledford was eastbound on Highway 26 when his 2013 Dodge Ram veered off the road, at about 7:30 Saturday morning. His pickup struck a rock wall, then crossed into oncoming traffic where it was hit by a westbound 1995 Dodge pickup. 

 

Ledford was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman and child in his pickup were flown to St. Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries. The driver and passenger in the other vehicle, two Sweet Home men, were not hurt. 
 
Highway 26 was closed for about two hours while OSP conducted their investigation.
