PRINEVILLE, OR -- Three people were killed in Crook County, Sunday night, when their car crashed into a semi truck on George Millican Road. According to the Sheriff's Office, the passenger car was northbound when the driver lost control on the wet road, in a curve. The vehicle ended up in a "sideways skid" and hit an oncoming Les Schwab tractor-trailer.

 

When CCSO deputies and State Troopers arrived at about 8 p.m., they found the car trapped under the semi and confirmed two people inside were deceased. They later discovered a small child in the backseat was also killed. A heavy haul wrecker from a local tow company was used to lift the truck off the passenger car. 

 

The truck driver was not physically injured and is cooperating with the ongoing investigation. Sheriff John Gautney says his office has tentatively identified the victims but is withholding names pending next of kin notification. 

 

Millican Road was closed for several hours, south of SE Reservoir Rd. 

 

UPDATE: The Crook County Sheriff has identified the victims. The driver was 29-year-old Joshua Saddler, of Prineville; the child was his two-year-old son Gaberiel. The other passenger was 35-year-old Mary Beth Gonsalves, also of Prineville.
