SCIO, Ore. -- Deputies said a man is dead after a crash in Linn County.

Deputies said Michael Dee Miller, 64, was driving a white 1990 Ford Econoline Van on Kingston Lyon Drive near Highway 226.

Investigators said Miller drove his van onto the gravel shoulder while attempting to negotiate a corner. They said it appears Miller over-corrected, crossed both lanes of travel and ended up hitting a tree.

A passerby came upon the crash site and called for help.

Officials are investigating and said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
