Las Vegas area residents injured in truck crash near Prineville
Two Las Vegas area residents were injured in a truck rollover crash early Friday morning on George Millican Road near Reservoir Road outside Prineville.
According to a Crook County Sheriff's Office report, deputies responded to the crash, which was reportedly blocking the road, around 12:20 a.m. Upon arrival, authorities found a 30-foot Enterprise Rent a Car box truck lying on its side, blocking George Millican Road just south of the intersection with Reservoir Road. At the time of the crash the box truck was loaded with personal belongings, which had been scattered as a result of the crash.
An investigation revealed that 26-year-old Antwyone Brown of Las Vegas was traveling southbound on George Millican Road in the 2015 International box truck when for unknown reasons, he left the roadway and rolled the vehicle onto its side.
Both Brown and his passenger, 33-year-old Victoire Parthou of North Las Vegas, sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transported by ground ambulance to St. Charles Bend for treatment.
Authorities noted that dense fog covered the area and may have been a contributing factor in the crash. No other contributing factors such as drugs or alcohol were found, and no citations were issued. The investigation is still on going.
George Millican Road south of Reservoir Road was reduced to one lane for about three hours while the box truck and debris were cleared. The Crook County Sheriff's Office reminds drivers to slow down during adverse weather conditions, especially when visibility is limited.
