Elderly Roseburg Man Dies in Single Vehicle Crash

On Monday, June 12, at approximately 8:45 A.M., the Oregon State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on Hwy 138E, near milepost 64, in Douglas County.

The preliminary investigation indicated a white GMC Sierra, operated by Donald Lee Wade (79) of Roseburg, was traveling eastbound on Hwy 138E when, for unknown reasons, it veered off the right-hand shoulder of the roadway. The vehicle traveled approximately 360 feet down the dirt shoulder of the highway before coming to an uncontrolled rest in the ditch. The operator of the vehicle (Wade) was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Authorities say the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

OSP was assisted by Glide Fire, the U.S. Forest Service, and ODOT.
