PRINEVILLE, OR -- Slick roads are thought to be the main factor in a slew of crashes across Central Oregon, Thursday.  A 91-year old man was killed when he lost control of his pickup on Highway 26 east of Prineville, just before 1 p.m.  Robert Akins' truck went down an embankment and struck a tree.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

Two juveniles were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after a separate crash in Crook County, Thursday morning.  The Chevy truck they were driving caught fire after rolling on SE Juniper Canyon Road.  
 
On Highway 97 near Sunriver, a driver suffered minor injuries when he lost control on the icy roadway and rolled his Dodge pickup, just after 11:30 Thursday morning.  The driver of that pickup was unable to avoid an SUV that had slid into oncoming traffic.  The SUV driver was not hurt.
