The Memorial Day weekend had its share of tragedies this year. Sunday night Oregon State Police say Stephen Earl Powell, 68, was struck by a pickup and killed as he walked in an unlit area of the roadway, in the southbound lane of Highway 97 near La Pine. Friends of Powell told our news partner, News Channel 21, that Powell had been suffering from symptoms of dementia.

 
Then, just south of Sunriver, Liberty Ramsay, 23, fell out of a Chevy Blazer Robert Reynolds, 23, was driving and needed help. Police investigation reveals Ramsay had been drinking.
 

And early Saturday morning, Preston Okesson, 21, of La Pine, was found on Franklin Avenue after apparently falling from the Bend Parkway overpass. He died a short time later at St. Charles Medical Center. The investigation is continuing about the reason for his fall.
