Update 10:20am - The victim in this case, a 13 year old girl, was pronounced dead at the hospital. Investigators have identified the victim but are still working to locate and notify her next of kin.

The MADIU and STAR teams are on scene. Investigators are not yet confirming the type of injuries sustained by the victim; however, they are considering the high likelihood that she was struck by a passing vehicle or an item attached to a vehicle. Anyone who drove through the area this morning and has information is asked to call dispatch at 541-776-7206. Also, anyone who has a surveillance camera system that records traffic on East Evans Creek Road between the city of Rogue River and Wimer is asked to call.


On October 30, 2017, at 7:30am, deputies were dispatched to the 5100-block of East Evans Creek Road. A passerby had located a minor female with injuries on the ground next to the roadway. The victim was transported to Rogue Regional Medical Center. Investigators are on scene. They urge anyone with information to call dispatch immediately at 541-776-7206.

Traffic note: East Evans Creek Road is closed between Minthorne Rd. and Forest Hills Drive. Drivers will need to find an alternate route until further notice.
