MADRAS -- A Madras man has died as a result of injuries suffered in a rollover crash near his home, Monday evening. Based on the preliminary investigation, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office believes 18-year-old Angel Arzate Rosales was northbound on North Adams Drive when he veered off the road and over-corrected, which caused the pickup to fishtail and flip multiple times. Rosales was the lone occupent of the pickup and no other vehicles were involved.
First responders were dispatched just after 6:15 p.m. and immediately provided first aid until fire crews could extricate him from the vehicle about ten minutes later. He was flown to St. Charles Bend at about 8:45 p.m. by fixed wing plane, and later passed away.
Rosales' use of a seatbelt is credited with keeping him from being ejected during the crash.
