Two die in two-vehicle crash on Marine Drive west of Blue Lake
Two people died and three people were injured in a crash Sunday evening at the intersection of Northeast Marine Drive and Interlachen Lane, west of Blue Lake Regional Park.
At the time of the crash, there was a steady flow of traffic and possibly additional witnesses who did not speak with police on scene. Investigators are asking for witnesses with any information to contact the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office at 503-988-0560. Refer to report No. 20-52114.
Multnomah County Sheriff's patrol deputies responded to crash at about 5:30 p.m. The East County Vehicular Crimes Team — a specially trained team of Sheriff's Office deputies and Gresham police officers trained in crash reconstruction — was activated to investigate the deadly crash.
Investigators believe a 1999 Saab, traveling westbound on Marine Drive, crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Chevrolet Suburban traveling eastbound. The driver and passenger in the Saab were ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. Three people in the Chevrolet were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The occupants of the Saab will be identified once next of kin notifications are made. The investigation is ongoing, and no further information is available.
The East County Vehicle Crimes Team investigates serious or fatal vehicle crashes and crimes in Gresham, Fairview, Maywood Park, Troutdale, Wood Village and unincorporated Multnomah County.
