Fatal accident on 101 in Bunker Hill

Oregon State Police are investigating a single vehicle fatal accident on Highway 101, south of Coos Bay Monday, that had traffic backed up for quite a ways.

KCBY arrived at milepost 240 just as crews were cleaning up the roadway.

Oregon State Police say, 43 year old Byron Massey was heading south on the 101, when his Pontiac Trans Am traveled through the center median and landed on its top.
The car then slid across both northbound lanes and down an embankment before coming to a stop just above the railroad tracks.

Massey was pronounced dead at the scene. We're told he was wearing a seat belt, and no one else was hurt.
