Police Arrest Man After Roll-Over Crash on Interstate 5 in Wilsonville
Two Salem women sustained serious injuries in the crash, though they are not considered life-threatening.
(WILSONVILLE, Ore.) - Oregon Police state troopers arrested a 23-year old Portland man following a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 southbound near milepost 283 in Wilsonville that seriously injured two Salem women.
Sgt. Tom Worthy with Oregon State Police in Portland says Zackary Standley was arrested at the scene of the crash and later lodged at the Clackamas County Jail on one count of reckless driving, two counts of recklessly endangering another person, and two counts of assault 4th degree.
Worthy says that around 11:20 AM this morning, a 1997 Toyota 4-Runner, driven by 63-year Irene Frost of Salem, was southbound on Interstate 5 near Elligson Rd when it was struck from behind at a high rate of speed by a 1994 Acura Integra driven by Zackary Samuel Standley of Portland.
The Toyota 4-Runner rolled over several times, finally coming to rest in the median, Worthy said.
"Frost was transported to Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland by ambulance. Her 38-year old daughter, Jodi Hunter, also of Salem, was taken to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland by Life Flight Air Ambulance."
He says both sustained serious injuries that are not believed to be life threatening at this time.
Witnesses reported seeing the Acura Integra driving south at a high rate of speed and following other vehicles too closely. Standley reportedly lost control of the Acura just before colliding with the rear end of the Toyota 4-Runner.
All 3 southbound lanes of Interstate 5 were closed for a short period. One lane remained closed until about 2:30 PM Friday while officers investigated the crash.
Oregon State Police were assisted at the scene by ODOT, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, and Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue.
