MADRAS, OR -- Jefferson County deputies are searching for the driver who fled the scene of a crash, Sunday afternoon. According to investigators, witnesses reported seeing the pickup speeding out of Madras on Glass Drive just before the driver lost control in a corner, near the train trestle, at about 12:50 p.m.

 

The vehicle came to rest in the middle of the road and another driver who came upon the scene saw someone running from the crash. A Deputy responded, but was forced to leave the scene to assist with a large fire at Tops Trailer Park.

 

Investigators say the pickup is registered to a Madras resident and no one else was involved.
