Ryan Olds, 18, a recent graduate of Brookings-Harbor High School, died in a car accident early Saturday morning on North Bank Chetco River Road. Alcohol and speed appear to be contributing factors in the accident according to Lt. John Ward of the Curry County Sheriff’s Office.

The car was discovered around 4:30 a.m on Saturday west of Gardiner Ridge Road.

Ward said Olds had been driving a car that did not belong to him and that he did not have authorization to drive. Ward said investigators had been told that Olds had been drinking heavily that evening at a party prior to taking the car and driving.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the accident.
