MADRAS, OR -- A 26-year-old man was killed Wednesday near Madras.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says Jose Torres Ramos was driving east on Elm Lane at a high rate of speed. For unknown reasons, he drifted onto the right shoulder, overcorrected, and rolled numerous times in a nearby alfalfa field.
Sheriff Jim Adkins says Ramos was not wearing his seat belt and was thrown about 50 feet from his car. First responders provided emergency care, and Air Life was directed to the scene.
Ramos died from his injuries before he could be transported.
