1 Person Dies in Rollover Accident


A minor passenger died early Sunday morning in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 82 in Umatilla County.

The Oregon State Police (OSP) responded around 6:37 a.m. to a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 82 near milepost 1.

The preliminary investigation indicated a Chevy Traverse, operated by Jose Angel Alonso, 32, of San Diego, was driving westbound when it hit the barrier on the bridge.  The Chevy then crossed the highway into the dirt median where it rolled, and a minor passenger was ejected.

The ejected passenger was declared dead on scene.  Two other minor passengers were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Alonso was checked by EMS and remained at the scene during the investigation.

The highway was impacted for approximately three hours during the on-scene investigation.

OSP was assisted by Umatilla Police Department, Umatilla Fire, and Oregon Department of Transportation.
