MADRAS, OR -- A young child was killed at the Madras Speedway, over the weekend. According to unconfirmed reports, the child was struck while in the pits, Saturday evening. 


The Jefferson County Sheriff is releasing very few details and says his office is investigating the incident. Sheriff Jim Adkins would only say the victim was rushed to St. Charles Madras, then flown to a Portland-area hospital where the child passed away. 

 

UPDATE: According to a Go Fund Me page set up to help the family with funeral expenses, the child killed was four-month-old Dawsyn Rose.
