 A Yoncalla man died Thursday night in a single vehicle crash on Interstate 5 near north of Sutherlin.

On April 28, 2011 at approximately 10:38 p.m. a 2003 Toyota pickup driven by DOUGLAS F. BENNETT, age 63, from Yoncalla, was northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 152 when it traveled off the right shoulder and struck an embankment on the east side of the freeway.  The pickup rolled several times, ejecting BENNETT.  He was not using safety restraints and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

OSP troopers from the Roseburg Area Command office are continuing the investigation.  Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by Douglas County Sheriff's Office, North Douglas EMS, and ODOT.  The right lane was closed about 4 1/2 hours during the scene investigation.
