A Portland woman died Oct. 16 during a three-vehicle crash on Highway 99E (McLoughlin Boulevard) in the Oak Grove area of unincorporated Clackamas County.
Portland resident Mary Ring, 70, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased, according to state troopers. Ring had been a passenger in a Toyota Yaris being driven by Terry Tomaszewski, 59, of Milwaukie. At Oak Grove Boulevard, they were stopped at a red light shortly before 7 p.m. when a northbound Chevy Trailblazer operated by Angelina Sloan, 43, of Portland rear-ended their Toyota Yaris.
"The collision caused both vehicles to slide into the intersection where the Chevy Trailblazer also collided with a westbound Saturn SUV, operated by a 17-year-old female of Milwaukie, that was proceeding through the intersection on a green light," Oregon State Police said in a report.
Sloan, Tomaszewski and the 17-year-old driver were all taken to area hospitals for injuries.
