MONUMENT - A Redmond-area man died and a John Day resident was seriously injured Saturday in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 402 about 2-1/2 miles east of Monument in Grant County.
According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Sgt. Gordon Larson, OSP troopers from John Day and Arlington, a Grant County deputy sheriff and local ambulance volunteers responded to a single vehicle rollover crash on Highway 402 near milepost 15 about 11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 23.
Police said a 2006 Toyota Tundra pickup driven by Tyler Boyer, 22, from Redmond, was westbound on a straight and flat stretch of Highway 402 when it veered onto the right gravel shoulder for an unknown reason. It appears Boyer tried bring the pickup back onto the roadway but over-corrected and rolled over.
The two occupants were both using safety restraints and airbags deployed inside the pickup. Boyer was dead at the scene.
Passenger William C. Loveday-Brady, 19, of John Day, sustained bruised organs and fractures in his neck.
Loveday-Brady was taken by John Day ambulance to the Long Creek area, where an air ambulance was able to land and transport him to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. He was released from the hospital Tuesday. (Blue Mountain Eagle newspaper, John Day, Grant, Oregon)
