A 51-year old La Pine man apparently died from an unknown medical condition when he was delivering construction supplies on Highway 372 (Cascade Lakes Highway) near Elk Lake at milepost 33.

According to Sgt. Ronny Dozier of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the scene September 11 shortly after 9 a.m.

Preliminary investigation revealed Edwin Haskins lost consciousness while backing up a delivery vehicle with construction supplies.  Unidentified persons on scene removed Haskins from the vehicle and began performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.

Sunriver Fire paramedics later attempted to revive Haskins, but were unsuccessful.  Haskins died from an “as of yet unknown” medical condition, said the sergeant.
