Update: NHP issued details of the crash that took the life of a Prineville, OR male, age 32. NHP says it appeared the vehicle, headed west on Butti toward Airport Drive, straightened out a roadway curve. Driver Cody Furr’s vehicle left the Butti pavement, plowed through the brush, rolling possibly several times. NHP Troopers say Furr was not wearing a seat belt and consequently was violently ejected through a window and was discovered deceased a short ways away. A form of “impairment” was also suspected to have contributed to the accident.
