On 12-08-12, at about 2320 hours, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a rollover traffic accident in the 4700 Block of Happy Valley Road, Roseburg.

Upon arrival, the responding Deputies found that the vehicle, a Kia SUV, operated by 18 year old Kaylyn Oelrich of Roseburg, had left the roadway and then reentered the roadway. It appeared that Oelrich attempted to regain control of the vehicle after it reentered the roadway, but was unable to. The vehicle eventually rolled over. During the rollover, Oelrich was ejected from the vehicle. Kaylyn Oelrich was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Three passengers in the vehicle at the time of the accident were also injured. 18 year old Hector Mandera, and 18 year old Jose Garcia, both of Roseburg were transported to Mercy Medical Center, as was a 14 year old male juvenile from Roseburg.

The cause of the accident has not yet been determined. The initial findings did not indicate that speed was a factor in the accident.

The case remains under investigation and no further details are available at this time.
