Police are still investigating a fatal single-vehicle crash that occurred on Highway 207 between Heppner and Lexington on Saturday morning.

Troopers responded to the crash scene at 9:32 a.m. and found a 2002 Hyundai Elantra that had left the roadway and crashed into a nearby airplane hangar.

The driver, 21-year-old Ryan Bennett from Heppner, died at the scene. Bennett was the only person in the vehicle.

Investigators said they believe speed was a factor in the crash and that Bennett failed to negotiate a curve, which caused him to drive off the roadway.
