(WHITE CITY, Ore.) - Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into Saturday evening's fatal pedestrian–involved crash on Highway 62 just east of White City. The crash resulted in the death of a 51-year old Medford man.

According to OSP Sergeant Mark Byrd, on October 30, 2010 at approximately 8:57 p.m. a 2005 Toyota Corolla driven by Joshua J. Taylor, age 33, from Eagle Point, was eastbound on Highway 62 east of Antelope Road when it struck Richard W. Kretsinger, age 51, from Medford, in the left lane of the two eastbound lanes.
