PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 51-year-old Prineville man was killed in a rollover crash on Juniper Canyon Road, Saturday evening. Investigators believe the driver became distracted and lost control of the vehicle. The passenger was ejected and died at the scene.

 

According to the Crook County Sheriff's Office, Sandra Kenner of Prineville was driving northbound after dropping a family member off, just after 5:15 p.m., December 26. They say she became temporarily distracted, realizing the family member left a cell phone in the vehicle. Kenner was handing the phone to her passenger, Anthony Johnson, when she lost control.

 

The 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee struck a rock wall, crossed both lanes of traffic and came to a rest on the west side of the road. Kenner was transported to St. Charles Hospital in Prineville with non-life threatening injuries. Johnson was thrown from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. Both were wearing seatbelts at the time. 

 

The investigation is ongoing and no citations have been issued.
