A child was killed Saturday evening at the Madras Speedway in Madras.
According to a Sunday evening post on the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, the child, described as “very young,” was taken to St. Charles Madras, then flown to a Portland area hospital, where she died.
The Facebook post did not identify the child or describe the nature of the accident that led to her death. It said, rather, that the sheriff’s office would release more information after the investigation has been completed and the district attorney has reviewed the sheriff’s office’s findings.
The child’s family is cooperating with the investigation, according to the sheriff’s office.
