Police are still investigating a single vehicle crash that occurred late Sunday night in Eugene. A 20 year old Eugene resident fell victim to the crash.
Authorities identified him as Lian Esrael Graves.
The victim and a 17 year old male were ejected out of the 1993 Volkswagen Passat, after the vehicle lost control near 11pm on Central Road East of Veneta.
The 17 year old has been identified but police refuse to release information about his identity. All we know is that he is suffering from very critical injuries and appears to be in critical condition.
Looking at the preliminary investigation, the vehicle was traveling in the north direction, soon after for a reason which is not yet disclosed, the vehicle began to swerve out of control, veering off the road while making a left turn.
The vehicle continued along the road’s shoulder until it flipped over and hit a fence. The vehicle ended up landing on its roof and catching a blaze shortly after.
The 20 year old Graves was pronounced dead on scene.
The 17 year old was first taken to PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend in Springfield in order to receive treatment but he was later transferred to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.
Central Road remained closed to traffic for six hours after the crash.
