A Bend man was killed after the pickup he was driving rolled several times on the Cascade Lakes Highway early Tuesday morning. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said speed is believed to be a factor.
It happened about 3:45 a.m. just east of Sparks Lake.
Investigators say the 2004 Ford Ranger, driven by a 33-year-old Bend man, was going around a curve and ended up on the soft shoulder before rolling.
It was determined the driver died of his injuries.
There was nobody else in the vehicle.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
