A 56-year old Bandon woman was killed Tuesday night when she lost control of her vehicle and drove off Highway 101, shearing off a utility pole before crossing an intersection and crashing into a tree. Oregon State Police (OSP) reported she was not using safety restraints.
Fine was pronounced dead at the scene, and, according to an OSP news release, was not wearing a seat belt.
Bandon Police, Coos County Sheriff’s deputies, Bandon Fire EMTs and Oregon Department of Transportation personnel provided assistance at the scene.
An investigation led by the OSP troopers assigned to the Coos Bay Area Command office is continuing.
The utility pole damage interrupted electrical service to residents on Boak Lane for about two hours.
