The incident remains under investigation and deputies say it is undetermined at this time exactly what caused the crash.
(DALLAS, Ore.) - Deputies say a Dallas woman died in a crash Saturday morning at 5:20 a.m. at 30500 North Fork Road SE.
Commander Kevin Schultz with the Marion County Sheriff's Office, says deputies arriving on the scene located a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt that had traveled approximately 80 feet down an embankment and into the North Santiam River.
"The Driver of the vehicle, a nineteen-year-old female from Dallas was ejected from the vehicle and was found deceased at the scene," Schultz said.
"It appeared that she was not wearing a seatbelt. A twenty-year-old male passenger also from Dallas sustained minor injuries and was able to walk to the Elk Horn Valley Campground to summon for help."
Schultz says members from the Jefferson Water Rescue Team assisted in the search and recovery.
"It appears the vehicle was traveling southwest on North Fork Road when it left the road. Vehicle speed may have been a factor of the crash."
The incident remains under investigation and it is undetermined at this time if there were any other factors that contributed to the crash.
The names of the driver and passenger are currently being withheld pending family notifications.
