Police identify man who died in I-5 rollover crash

Police have identified the man who died July 15 when the stolen vehicle he was driving rolled over on Interstate 5 just north of the Lane/Linn County line, Oregon State Police said Monday.

Police identified the man through fingerprints as Lorenzo Joe Southerland, 47. Investigators have not found any of Southerland's relatives and seek assistance in doing so. Anyone with information about him should call state police Sgt. Alan Gilbert, 726-2536, Ext. 220.

Southerland had a felony warrant for robbery in Sacramento, police said, and had been arrested in Lane, Clackamas and Multnomah counties before 2000.

Southerland's Oregon driving record listed a Molalla address, but when police checked that address they were told he had not lived there for several years.

Southerland had reportedly been driving erratically before veering across the northbound lanes of I-5 and rolling several times in the median. He was ejected from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene.

Rising fire danger forces activity restrictions

Because of increased fire danger, the South Cascade District of Lane County today imposed more strict regulations on recreational activities in the land it protects.

The state Department of Forestry announced that open fires including campfires, charcoal fires, cooking fires and warming fires are prohibited, except at designated areas. Portable cooking stoves using liquefied or bottled fuels are allowed.

Smoking is prohibited while traveling, unless on improved roads or boats on the water and at designated locations.

Between the hours of 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., chain saw use, mowing grass with power driven equipment and cutting, grinding and welding metal are prohibited. Call 726-3588 with questions.
