Elderly Veneta man dies when car swerves off road, overturns in pond

VENETA – An elderly man died when his car went off a gravel road and crashed into a pond on private property near the community of Crow Thursday, Lane County sheriff’s deputies said.

Dead is Ambrose Wright Canaday, 81, of 24495 Crow-Vaughn Road, Veneta.

Canaday had dinner with a friend, sheriff’s Deputy Dale Hartwig, and was driving to the home of another friend on El Dale Road when the accident occurred at about 7 p.m., reports said.

Canaday lost control of the car in loose gravel on a steep grade. The car crashed through a steel pole and barbed-wire fence and landed upside down in the pond, reports said.

A short time later, Hartwig discovered the accident and pulled Canaday from the car, but he was already dead, deputies said.

Canaday’s son, Wayne, told deputies his father had been suffering from dizzy spells. Deputies said Canaday may have lost control of the car because of a health problem.
