Gresham man dies in crash near Estacada
Oregon State Police say a Gresham man has died after experiencing a "medical emergency" while driving near the city limits of Estacada.
Logan Richard O'Brien, 27, was pronounced dead at the scene after his blue 2000 Jeep Cherokee flipped several times and landed approximately 100 feet away from Highway 224 near milepost 34 around 3:10 p.m. on Friday, March 23.
O'Brien's vehicle began to speed up while he was stricken, according to a news release.
Two other passengers — Portland residents Blaise Adam Mark O'Brien, 23, and Rick Nathan Bean, 38 — survived the accident and were able to exit the vehicle after the crash.
First responders transported both men by ambulance to Emanuel Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Logan O'Brien was a 2009 graduate of Reynolds High School, according to an obituary.
"He enjoyed guns, four-wheeling, Denver Bronco fan, long-boarding, riding motorcycles, jeeps, was a good mechanic, loved his family and was a great dad," the obituary states.
Oregon State Police responded to the accident with help from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, the Oregon Department of Transportation and Estacada Fire.
