Crash on HWY 211 sends three to hospital, dog to veterinarian
A two-car crash that occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21 resulted in three individuals transported with injuries along with one dog to a local veterinarian.
Molalla Police Department Sergeant Frank Schoenfeld said the incident is still under investigation, but confirmed that a Ford Focus drifted into the oncoming lane of traffic and hit a pickup truck pulling a trailer near the intersection of Highway 211 and Leroy Street in Molalla.
Two people from the pickup truck had to be transported with injuries while one from the Focus was also transported.
Molalla Fire District Chief Vince Stafford said a dog involved in the accident was picked up by a local veterinarian for care. Schoenfeld confirmed the driver of the Focus had a dog in the vehicle.
Schoenfeld said the officer on scene had to travel to Oregon Health and Science University and "a couple other hospitals" to finish up the investigation.
Upon a visit to the scene of the accident, a mailbox can be seen uprooted from the ground and into the ditch on the north side of the highway, along with some debris scattered on the road.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
