A 24-year-old Corvallis man traveling on Iris Circle northwest of Philomath left the road and crashed Thursday afternoon, Philomath Fire & Rescue reported.

Law enforcement and emergency responders were dispatched to the crash at 4:37 p.m. The crash occurred on a curve just before Iris Circle meets Columbine Drive.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office reported that the driver “failed to negotiate the curve due to speed and crashed into a fence and tree off the north side on the roadway … The vehicle appeared to have rolled and landed back on the wheels.”

The driver sustained minor injuries, BCSO reported.

Capt. Rich Saalsaa, Fire & Rescue public information officer, said the vehicle sustained major damage while taking out a gate and tree on the property.

“We have quite a few accidents there — people going too fast downhill and misjudging the curve,” Saalsaa said. “(It’s a) gravel road, so the rocks act like ball bearings and the driver loses steering.”

Fire & Rescue’s response included a truck with four people and a rescue vehicle with three people plus a command officer. Corvallis Fire was at the scene with an ambulance but there was no transport.
