Medford man seriously injured in one-car crash

A former North Medford High School football player was critically injured in a car crash Tuesday night in east Medford.

Roger Lee Keller, 19, of the 3400 block of Foothill Road, was driving north along the 2500 block of Foothill Road at 11 p.m. when his car swerved off the road and crashed into a tree and a power pole. Keller was the only one in the car, police said.

Medford Fire and Rescue, Medford police, Oregon State Police and Pacific Power responded to the scene. A portion of Foothill Road in Medford was closed for two hours, police said.

Keller was extricated from the vehicle and transported to Providence Medford Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition Wednesday afternoon, hospital officials said.

The car, a 2004 Subaru Impreza, is listed as a total loss, police said.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the Serious Accident Reconstruction Team.

Police ask anyone with information about the crash or Keller to call Detective Jim Williams at 541-774-2230.
