An adult female died Tuesday afternoon in a single vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 50 between Merrill and Malin in Klamath County. Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into the cause, but preliminary information indicates the victim may have had a medical emergency while driving.

On October 8, 2013 at approximately 3:15 p.m., a 2004 Pontiac Vibe driven by DELOISE TERESA ROBLES, age 66, from Concord, California, was traveling east on Highway 50 near Harpold Road when it drifted off the highway and rolled at least once, coming to rest on its top. The driver was the lone occupant and she was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency responders. She was wearing a safety restraint.

OSP troopers from the Klamath Falls Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Trooper Craig Rice is the lead investigator.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Malin Police Department, Merrill Rural Fire Protection District, Basin Ambulance, and ODOT.
