HEPPNER, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a man died in a single car crash on Highway 207 between Heppner and Lexington after he lost control of his vehicle.

Oregon State Police say they were dispatched to the scene of the accident at about 9:30 am on Saturday.

Authorities say 21-year-old Ryan Bennett of Heppner failed to negotiate a curve. As a result, his car left the roadway and crashed into an airplane hangar adjacent to the highway.

Bennett died at the scene. He was the sole occupant of the car.

Investigators say speed was a contributing factor in the crash.
