Family members find missing Oregon woman dead in car crash
by Cheryl McDermott

Family members of a Glendale, Oregon woman who didn’t arrive at her intended destination at an expected time Sunday found her dead inside her vehicle that apparently ran off the freeway, went over a guardrail, and rolled several times down an embankment.

Carol Ann Conger, 68, called family members by cellphone about 3:20 p.m. while enroute to Grants Pass, Oregon State Troopers said.  When she didn’t arrive within a reasonable length of time and they were unable to reach her by phone, the family began looking for her along the freeway.

About 7:50 p.m. they located her vehicle.

Preliminary investigation by OSP determined that as Conger was traveling downhill on Interstate-5, for unknown reasons her vehicle left the highway, went over a guardrail and traveled down an embankment, rolling several times before coming to rest about 300-feet from initial impact.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers from the Grants Pass worksite and Central Point Area Command are completing the investigation to determine the main cause of the crash.  Josephine County Sheriff’s deputies, Oregon Department of Transportation personnel, and emergency responders with both Wolf Creek and Rural Metro Fire Departments assisted at the scene.
