An elderly Corvallis man died Saturday morning in a single vehicle fatal traffic crash on Highway 99W about one mile north of Corvallis. Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers investigating the crash are looking into the possibility that the man had a medical problem that may have caused him to drive off the highway.
On October 31, 2009 at approximately 6:00 a.m. a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria driven by DALE D. SCHROCK, age 80, from Corvallis, was northbound on Highway 99W near milepost 89 when he left the roadway and rolled over into a ditch. SCHROCK was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was using safety restraints and his car's airbags deployed.
OSP troopers from the Albany Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Benton County Sheriff's Office and Corvallis Fire Department assisted. The highway was not closed.
