A Prineville man was injured in a single-vehicle crash on Powell Butte Highway on Thursday afternoon.

Deputies from the Crook County Sheriff's Office responded to the crash, near milepost 6, around 3 p.m.

Upon arriving, they learned that a GMC pickup, driven by 61-year-old Harley Hunter, was traveling east towards Prineville when his vehicle drove off the road and hit several boulders.
