Media Release
 

On Monday, September 19, 2011 at approximately 0101 hrs., deputies from the Crook County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a report of a single vehicle rollover with unknown injuries on Highway 126 at Calvary Way, near mile post 4 in Powell Butte.
 
Upon arrival deputies located a Gray, 2006 Nissan Xterra on its side off the North side of Highway 126. The driver of the Xterra had fled the scene on foot prior to the arrival of law enforcement. The area was searched, but the driver was not located.
 
As a result of the investigation it was determined that the Xterra had been traveling Westbound on Highway 126 when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle traveling off the South side of the Highway onto the gravel shoulder. The driver then overcorrected, crossed both lanes of traffic and left the Highway on the North side of the road. The Xterra then cut a guide wire for a power pole and rolled one time before coming to a rest on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
 
The driver of the Xterra was later identified as being Matthew Anderson age 26 of Powell Butte, Oregon. On Monday, September 19, 2011 at approximately 2056 hrs., Deputies located Matthew at his residence on the Powell Butte Highway. Matthew was subsequently taken into custody and charged with Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver/ Property Damage, and Reckless Driving. Matthew was transported to the Crook County Jail where he was booked and later released.
 
The estimated damage reported by the power company was approximately $5,000.00. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the investigation by the Redmond Police Department and the Oregon State Police.
 
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash. No further information is available at this time.
