EUGENE, Ore. – A memorial is growing north of Cottage Grove for a young man who was killed in a car crash Thursday night.

Dillon Privitt, 22, was killed in a two-car accident on Hwy. 99 south of Saginaw. The other driver was injured but is expected to survive.


Two people who knew Privitt placed a small memorial near the crash site Friday afternoon.

Leslie Cummings says she’s known Privitt, whose nickname was Tank, since he was 15.

“He was a really good kid,” Cummings said. “I just can't say enough. It’s really sad. We'll miss him."

Cummings says she's known others who have been killed on Hwy. 99 -- and she hopes things can change.
