A juvenile not wearing his seat belt was ejected and killed Wednesday evening in a single-vehicle traffic crash on Logsden Road near Siletz.

The preliminary investigation revealed three juvenile occupants were westbound on Logsden road near mile post 3 at approximately 5 p.m. when the driver lost control of a pickup truck while negotiating a curve.

The vehicle left the roadway and one male juvenile was ejected. Lifesaving efforts were attempted by first responders and EMS, but the juvenile was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver and passenger, who said they were wearing their seat belts, were taken to Samaritan Pacific Community Hospital in Newport for minor injuries.

Logsden Road was closed intermittently for approximately five hours. The crash remains under investigation.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Siletz Fire Department, Newport Police Department and Toledo Police Department.
