One Dead in Crook County Rollover Crash
Date: June 20, 2015
Location: Southeast Bear Creek Fife Road
Name: Cayle Krebs
Late Saturday evening, two people riding in the bed of a pickup were thrown from the truck when it left the road and overturned.
A 2004 Ford F-350 was driving along Southeast Bear Creek Fife Road about 30 miles east of Bend and 50 miles south of Prineville when the driver lost control causing the pickup to overturn.
One of the passengers thrown from the bed was Cayle Krebs, 30, of Ione. The others involved were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Police believe alcohol and speed may be contributing factors.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we extend our condolences to the family and friends of Cayle Krebs. We hope everyone involved is able to fully recover soon.
While many single-car accidents seem uncomplicated, there are sometimes other factors to consider. If you have been injured in a single- car accident, like the one described here, you may be able to receive compensation in several instances:
- If poor road conditions, poor signage, or bad traffic control contributed to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the city, county, or state. In cases against a public body, you may only have 180 days to file a tort claim notice (in most cases) so act quickly to protect your rights.
- If the car’s mechanic was negligent in his last repairs, contributing to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the mechanic or his business.
- If the car’s manufacturer was negligent, you may be able to file a product liability suit against them. Car manufacturers have often been held accountable for design defects and manufacturing defects, and these lawsuits help ensure that future drivers are not hurt by negligent safety standards.
If you have been injured in a single-car accident that you believe may not have been your fault, you can call a Portland car accident lawyer for help with your investigation at 503-222-4411.
