While on-scene, officers found a deceased man just south of the crash site, between the Parkway and the railroad. They've identified him as 24-year-old Robert McKinney, who des not have a permanent address in Bend. Police say McKinney’s death does not appear to be the result of a crime and the investigation is ongoing.
