Monday, Jan. 10, at 8:23 a.m. Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies responded to a rollover crash on Belmont Lane about three miles west of Madras.

Deputies found a full-size truck on its top. The female driver was in another truck nearby. Jefferson County emergency medical personnel assessed the driver. She had only minor injuries.
