ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A 26-year-old Springfield man is dead after the pickup he was driving crashed on Hwy 138 East near Buckhorn Road.
State police say that just before 2:30 am, Marcus Norman Storm, 26, of Springfield, was driving a 2003 Chevy pickup westbound, when for an unknown reason the vehicle left the roadway.
Troopers say the pickup crossed into the eastbound lanes and up an embankment, which caused the vehicle to roll.
The pickup came to rest in the eastbound lanes and Storm was ejected.
Troopers say that speed may have been a factor and that Storm was not wearing a seat belt.
Officials pronounced him deceased at the scene.
The investigation into the crash is continuing.
