On February 8, 2016 at about 7:52 a.m., OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a single vehicle roll-over crash on Highway 20 at milepost 55 (near Brothers).
Preliminary information reveals a 2001 Ford Windstar van was traveling eastbound on Highway 20 when the vehicle veered off the roadway and rolled over. Upon emergency crews arriving on scene they discovered the driver, Mr. Anthony Mychael VANOUDHEUSDEN, age 27, of Ogden Utah, who was ejected from the vehicle and later died from his injuries. Passenger, Ms. Destinni Aleah MARTINEZ, age 24, of Ogden Utah and child passengers (ages – 10 months, 3 year old and 6 year old) were taken to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend where they were treated for their injuries.
Evidence on scene indicates VANOUDHEUSDEN was not wearing a safety belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Troopers report icy conditions in the area which may have been a factor in the crash.
OSP was assisted by Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Bend Fire, FBI, and the Oregon Department of Transportation. Highway 20 was closed for one hour to allow the investigation to occur. The investigation is continuing and more information will be released when it is available.
