A Culver man crashed his pickup Sunday afternoon on Mill Creek Road, following a failed attempt at a power slide about 15 miles northeast of Prineville.
Crook County deputies responded to the accident scene around 3:40 p.m., at milepost 5. Upon arrival, they found a black 2004 Ford F150, driven by 20-year-old James Farris, had rolled off of the east bank of the roadway, through a fence, and came to rest near a large pine tree.
An investigation revealed that Farris was traveling south on Mill Creek Road toward Prineville when he tried to power slide and lost control while driving. He lost control of his vehicle and rolled off of the east side of the roadway at least two times, coming to rest on its tires.
There was one juvenile passenger in the vehicle with James. The juvenile was transported by private vehicle to St. Charles Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
It was determined that speed was the cause of the crash. Farris did not report any injuries at the scene and was not transported. No citations were noted.
