LAKESIDE, Ore. — Just after 6 p.m. Saturday, the Coos County Communications Center received a report of a traffic crash in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area of Lakeside.

The crash was reported to be on the Ten Mile Sand Road about 1.5 miles East of Horsfall Beach.

Initial reports indicated a 2001 Jeep Cherokee was off of the sand road in the water, upside down, and that there were still occupants in the vehicle.

Two of the three occupants were able to get out of the vehicle with assistance of several other ATV riders who stopped to help.

Upon the deputies' arrival, the third occupant was still trapped in the vehicle underwater. The deputy, with the assistance of the other ATV riders, was able to attach a winch line from the deputy's patrol truck and quickly winch the vehicle out of the water so that the occupant could be removed from the vehicle.

"CPR was immediately administered and continued to be administered until medical staff from the Hauser Fire Department and Bay Cities Ambulance arrived on scene and took over medical aid," CCSO said.

Bay Cities Ambulance Medical personnel with the assistance of Bay Area Hospital Physicians pronounced the third passenger, Hailey Vincent, deceased at the scene, the report said.

At this time the cause of the accident is still under an active investigation.
