BEND, OR -- A Salem man was killed in a late night crash, Tuesday, east of Bend. Oregon State Police responded to the scene at about 10:15 p.m., near Hampton on Highway 20. Preliminary investigation indicates 66-year-old John Ottlinger was westbound when his minivan left the highway for an unknown reason.

 

The van went into a ditch and OSP says Ottlinger overcorrected, crossed into the oncoming lane and entered the opposite ditch, where the van rolled several times. Investigators say Ottlinger was not wearing his seatbelt and he was ejected. He suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.

 

Highway 20 was closed for about 45 minutes during the investigation.
