Crash causes critical injury
Two people were injured, one critically, in a single-vehicle crash northeast of Hubbard early Tuesday morning.
Marion County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to the scene in the 11000 block of Feller Road Northeast at around 3:49 a.m. Sgt. Jeremy Landers said emergency crews discovered two people injured from the wreck, and summoned Life Flight after determining the nature of the injuries.
The passenger in the vehicle was transported to a Portland-area hospital and remains in critical condition. The driver was taken to a Salem-area hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Landers said that investigators called to the scene continue to work on determining a cause. Marijuana use has not been ruled out as a contributing factor.
Feller Road was closed for several hours during the investigation, reopening around 8 a.m.
"A determination regarding charges related to the crash will be made after additional investigation has been completed," Landers said. "The driver and passenger's names are not being released at this time pending family notifications."
Hubbard Police, METCOM 911, Aurora Fire District, Woodburn Ambulance, Life Flight, and the Marion County District Attorney's Office assisted MCSO.
