JOSEPHINE COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A 21-year-old man was killed in a crash near Wolf Creek in Josephine County Friday, according to Oregon State Police.

Crews responded to the crash on Lower Wolf Creek Road at approximately 10:30 p.m.

According to Oregon State Police, preliminary investigation revealed that a 1985 Nissan pickup, driven by Corey Steward, was driving on Lower Wolf Creek Road when he lost control.

The Nissan then rolled four to five times, according to Oregon State Police.

After Wolf Creek Fire and Rescue and AMR crews arrived to begin medical treatment, several other people showed up at the scene and ‘became confrontational’ before troopers from Oregon State Police arrived.

Oregon State Police said while Steward was being transported to the hospital, an unknown vehicle began to follow the ambulance.

According to the ambulance crew, the car without its headlights on began to harass the ambulance by tailgating and driving recklessly.

Before a trooper could arrive to stop the suspicious car, the car had turned around and ambulance crews lost sight of it according to Oregon State Police.

Steward was taken to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Alcohol is being considered a contributing factor to the crash. According to Oregon State Police, Steward had a suspended Oregon driver’s license.
