(MOLALLA, Ore.) - The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is still investigating a single vehicle crash near Molalla, Oregon that killed two people, and sent three others to the hospital.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office spokesman Deputy Ben Frazier says deputies were called out to the crash just after 8:00 p.m. on S Molalla Forest Road and they found that a passenger vehicle had gone off the road, went down a steep 100 foot embankment and ended up in the Molalla River. Two of the occupants, the driver and a passenger, were killed as a result of the crash, and the three other passengers were injured.

The cause of the deaths and extent of the passengers' injuries is unknown at this time. However, two of the passengers were transported to Portland area hospitals by LifeFlight, and the third passenger was transported to an area hospital by ambulance, Frazier said.

As part of the investigation, deputies learned at least one passerby rendered aid to the injured passengers at the crash scene until deputies arrived. When Deputies arrived on scene, Frazier says two of them climbed down the embankment, and rendered aid themselves until the injured passengers were safely pulled up the embankment by rescue personnel.

The names of the deceased are being withheld pending family notifications.
