Juvenile involved in single vehicle accident

On Thursday night, at approximately 11:42 p.m., deputies from the Crook County Sheriff's Office and Crook County Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the report of a single vehicle rollover crash on Southeast Juniper Canyon Road, approximately a quarter mile south of Paulina Highway.
   Upon arrival, deputies located a White 2000 Nissan Sentra off the east side of the road, on its top in a field. The male juvenile driver was uninjured and refused transport to the hospital.
   The investigation revealed that the driver of the vehicle had been traveling southbound on Southeast Juniper Canyon Road and lost control of the vehicle while trying to negotiate a corner. The vehicle left the road on the eastside of the road, rolled and crashed through a barbed wire fence. Approximately 60 feet of barbed wire fence was damaged. It was determined that speed and fatigue were contributing factors in the crash.
   The male juvenile was the only occupant in the vehicle at the time of the crash. He was also wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. No citations were issued.
