A 50 year old Medford man died Wednesday night in a single car accident in the 5300 block of Kane Creek Road in Central Point. Sometime around 11:14 p.m., James Hyde was traveling south on Old Stage Road when his red Nissan truck drifted off the shoulder of the road. It crossed back over the roadway, and then slammed into an embankment. Hyde was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the crash scene. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department says that speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors.
