Weirsdale Man, 26, Dies In Car Crash
A 26-year-old Weirsdale man died Saturday night after he was thrown from his vehicle when it spun out of control.
Police said Gregory Trent was speeding on NE 30th Court around 8 p.m. in Marion County.

Trent was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver suffered minor injuries.
