Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into Wednesday afternoon’s single vehicle rollover crash that injured 2 adults and 3 children along Highway 211 near Colton. The highway was closed, but re-opened around 4:30 p.m.
According to Senior Trooper Dan Swift, on January 1, 2014, at approximately 2:55 p.m., a 1991 Honda Accord four-door with five occupants inside was eastbound on Highway 211 near S. Dhooghe Road when the driver lost control while navigating a curve. As a result, the vehicle rolled and came to rest on its top, landing on the side of the highway.
The two adults and three children, including a one-year-old child in a car safety seat, were able to get out of the vehicle. All five were transported by ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University with non-life threatening injuries. No one was ejected and all were using safety restraints.
OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation into the cause of the crash. The names of the occupants are not available.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Colton Fire Department, Molalla Rural Fire Protection District, and ODOT.
