Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into a single vehicle fatal traffic crash Sunday afternoon on Riverbanks Road south of Grants Pass. The crash resulted in the death of a 42-year old Grants Pass-area woman.
According to OSP Sergeant Tanya Henderson, on June 19, 2011 at approximately 3:58 p.m. a 1996 Toyota 4Runner driven by LESLIE IRWIN, age 42, was eastbound on Riverbanks Road near Marcy Loop Road. The vehicle swerved into the westbound lane where IRWIN over-corrected leading the vehicle to travel off the eastbound highway shoulder where it rolled several times. IRWIN was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene.  She was not wearing safety restraints.
OSP troopers from the Grants Pass work site are continuing the investigation.
