PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Hillsboro man was killed in a Friday night crash, just north of Prineville. The Crook County Sheriff’s Office says 58-year-old Gary Weingart failed to negotiate a curve on McKay Creek Road, at about 9 p.m.
Weingart was not wearing his seat-belt when the pickup rolled and he was ejected. Arriving Deputies found the truck on its side with extensive damage; Weingart was discovered deceased in a field, just north of his vehicle. He was alone in the truck when the crash occurred.
Investigators believe speed and alcohol were both factors in the crash, and the investigation is ongoing.
