POWELL BUTTE, OR -- Two brothers were killed in an early morning crash, Friday, in Crook County. The Sheriff’s Office says 19-year-old Joshua Eckstein, of Bend, was driving eastbound on Powell Butte Highway when he lost control, just before 6 a.m., near Alfalfa Road.


Evidence at the scene and a witness account indicate he veered into the oncoming lane, over-corrected and slid sideways. His pickup went onto the soft shoulder where it rolled onto its side and crashed into a tree, crushing the cab. Eckstein and his 21-year-old brother Jacob, also of Bend, were pronounced dead at the scene.


Investigators believe icy conditions may have been a contributing factor.
