MADRAS, OR -- One person was hurt and a dog remains missing after a Sunday morning crash, east of Madras. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, a 74-year-old man was driving from Prineville to Portland on Highway 26, when he drifted on to the shoulder at about 7 a.m. He over-corrected, skidded across the highway, went over an embankment and rolled the car several times, through a barbed wire fence. 


When first responders arrived, he was hanging from his seatbelt, which they say likely saved his life. The driver was taken to St. Charles Madras, but his dog Roxy ran from the crash and has not been caught. A deputy and tow truck driver remained on scene for several hours, trying to entice her with water and treats, but were unsuccessful. 

 

UPDATE (05/06/2019) Roxy was reunited with her family at the Three Rivers Humane Society. Vet techs removed numerous ticks from the dog and provided medical treatment prior to the reunion.
