A Baker City man was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 7 Wednesday afternoon.
Evan Simonski-Davis, 25, died in the crash that happened about 3:30 p.m. near Milepost 44, according to Oregon State Police. That's about six miles south of Baker City, near where the highway leaves Bowen Valley and enters the Powder River Canyon.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the Toyota SUV that Simonski-Davis was driving southbound left the highway, struck a rock and rolled into a canal.
Speed and failing to use seat belt are being investigated as possible contributing factors.
OSP was assisted by Baker City Fire Department, Baker County Sheriff's Office, and ODOT.
