Tualatin man dies in Ehlen Road crash
Marion County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating a fatal crash reported just before 9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 4.
MCSO Sgt. Jeremy Landers said the single-vehicle crash occurred in the 13500 block of Ehlen Road Northeast near Aurora. Just before the crash the involved vehicle, a 2007 Porsche 911, was seen going eastbound on Ehlen Road at high speed by a Canby police sergeant who was traveling westbound.
Canby police did not attempt to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle, losing sight of the car while turning around.
The sergeant came upon the crash a short time later where witnesses had already stopped to attempt to help the vehicle's occupants. The car partially caught fire before Canby police extinguished it.
Despite life-saving efforts from medical responders, the driver, Guy Reed, 25, of Tualatin, died at the scene. A passenger has been identified as Jenna Mansfield, 28, also from Tualatin. Mansfield was transported to a Portland-area hospital, her injuries are non-life-threatening.
Aurora Fire District, Canby Fire District, Canby Police, Marion County Medical Examiner's Office, Marion County District Attorney's Office, Marion County Public Works, and Oregon State Police all assisted MCSO.
