Employee transported by Life Flight to Portland Friday with undisclosed injuries

After completing a service call in a parking lot near West First and Grant streets, a Newberg Les Schwab employee was pinned between two vehicles Friday.

Darren Dorman, 40, had finished the service call and was putting his tools away when the driver of the vehicle being worked on started the engine to warm up the vehicle, according to Capt. Jeff Kosmicki of the Newberg-Dundee Police Department.

The driver, Timothy Wilcox of Newberg, had left the 1979 Ford pickup in reverse when it was started, Kosmicki said, and it pinned Dorman between the rear of the Ford and the service truck.

Dorman was transported by Life Flight helicopter to Oregon Health and Sciences University Hospital with unknown injuries. OHSU media officials said he was released, but wouldn’t say when.
