NEAR MORO, Ore. -- A 21 year old Pendleton man is dead after a crash southeast of Moro in Sherman County, Oregon.

Oregon State Police say they received a call around 6:30 Monday morning. When emergency responders got there, they found a truck overturned. Roberty Kyle Burnside had been ejected from the pickup. Crews also found 19 year old Zachary Jon Justensen of Kent, Oregon nearby with non-life threatening injuries. He was transported to a nearby hospital.

Investigators say the two reportedly left a home several miles from the scene of the crash Sunday night around 10 PM. They say the driver (they are still unsure who was behind the wheel) failed to negotiate a turn, rolled and landed on the driver side.

Crews are still investigating.
