SHADY COVE – Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies are investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred on Highway 62 early Saturday morning.  The single vehicle crash at the Shady Cove city limits killed one passenger; the driver and a second passenger were taken to the hospital.

On December 22, 2018, at 2:29 a.m., dispatch received a 911 call reporting a crash on Highway 62 just south of Brophy Way.  A northbound 2017 Honda Accord sedan left the roadway and crashed into the back of a semi-truck trailer parked on the shoulder.

A 25-year-old Shady Cove woman riding in the front passenger seat was partially ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.   Investigators say she was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver, Cody Dylan Lowe, 24, of Shady Cove, was transported to Rogue Regional Medical Center (RRMC) for treatment for a possible arm fracture and other minor injuries.  He was wearing a seat belt.

The back seat passenger, Tyler Robert Van Houten, 25, of Shady Cove, was transported to RRMC for treatment for minor injuries.  He was not wearing a seat belt.

JCSO detectives, a medical examiner investigator, and members of the Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction (STAR) team responded.  At the time of the crash, the roadway was not affected by ice or other weather-related conditions.  Deputies are investigating whether impairment contributed to the crash. 

The identity of the decedent will be released at a later time to allow family and friends to be notified.  No further information is available for release.
