Driver in fiery fatal crash identified as Central Point man

Oregon State Police have identified the driver killed in a single-vehicle crash along Rogue River Highway as 24-year-old Kevin Majoros of Central Point.

Majoros was the lone occupant of a 1987 Toyota 4x4 pickup that failed to negotiate a curve at 12:18 a.m. Monday in the 3000 block of Highway 199, near milepost 10, according to a release issued by OSP and previous news reports.

The pickup fell down a steep embankment underneath a bridge, where rescuers struggled to safely access the truck after it caught fire in the impact, according to earlier news reports. Crews found the driver dead after extinguishing the fire. The body was extricated from the vehicle the next morning.

The vehicle had landed on its driver side into Birdseye Creek, according to a photo issued by OSP. Rescuers described the water as “knee deep” in an earlier news report.

Rogue River Fire District, Rogue River police, the Jackson County sheriff’s office and the Oregon Department of Transportation assisted with the emergency.
