WOODBURN, Oregon - This morning around 9:45 a.m., deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office were called to the 2500 block of East Lincoln Street near Woodburn, after a resident found a badly damaged vehicle in their farm field. When deputies arrived they began to investigate and discovered two adult men deceased inside the cab of the truck.
Deputies believe the men were traveling east on East Lincoln when they failed to negotiate a curve launching them over an estimated 80 foot embankment, causing the vehicle to roll onto its top and killing both occupants instantly. Deputies believe the crash occurred sometime over night and speed is being investigated as a factor. The Sheriff's Office does not intend to release any names associated with the crash until next of kin notification can be made.
