Two-vehicle crash reported near Scappoose High School
UPDATED 12/14/17: Scappoose police and firefighters responded to a two-vehicle crash involving a teen driver Wednesday morning, Dec. 13, at the intersection of Southeast High School Way and Highway 30.
Firefighters were dispatched to the crash at 9:51 a.m. in what was reported to dispatchers as a T-bone crash, according to Scappoose Fire District officials.
The driver of a small passenger vehicle was traveling eastbound on Highway 30 and began to turn left toward Southeast High School Way when it collided with a pickup truck traveling westbound on the highway in the left lane.
Scappoose Police Officer James Cardiff identified the driver of the passenger vehicle as a juvenile male. Cardiff said the teen was waiting in the left turn lane, when the blinking yellow arrow was displayed. The driver misjudged the distance between his vehicle and the oncoming truck when the two crashed, Cardiff explained.
The boy, who is a high school student, had one passenger in the car, another male juvenile. The boys are not being named by police due to their age.
The driver of the pickup truck was identified as a female adult with one adult male passenger. No citations were issued for either party involved.
The people involved complained of being sore after the crash, but no major injuries were reported and no hospital transports were required.
Scappoose police officers directed traffic in the area while the scene was cleared Wednesday morning.
