Two-Car Motor Vehicle Crash Sends Six People to the HospitalSalem-News.com
One driver was cited for a right of way violation, both vehicles were totaled.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Marion County Senior Deputy Todd Bay was headed to work Thursday afternoon when he came upon a serious motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Cordon Road NE and Swegle Road NE. It occurred at 5:34 p.m.
Medics were immediately called to treat the victims of the crash.
Sr. Deputy Bay's investigation revealed that a 1991 Chevrolet Blazer, driven by 18-year old Curtis Everetts Jr., of Salem had been traveling eastbound on Swegle Road NE, when it stopped at the stop sign at Cordon Road NE.
While stopped at the stop sign, Everetts allowed four passengers to get into the car, bringing the total number of people in the Blazer to six. Everetts then pulled from the stop sign, into the path of a black 2007 Toyota Solara convertible, driven by 63-year old Julienne Wimmer, also of Salem.
Police say Ms. Wimmer applied the brakes but was unable to avoid crashing into the passenger door of the Blazer. The impact caused the Blazer to roll onto the driver's side and come to rest.
The six passengers; three males and three females between 16 & 19 years of age, were all injured and transported by three Medic vans to Salem Hospital for treatment. Their conditions are not being released, but officials say their injuries are not felt to be life threatening. The identities of the passengers are not known at this time.
The airbag in Ms. Wimmer's vehicle deployed; she was uninjured. There were no passengers in her vehicle.
Both vehicles were totaled by the impact. Mr. Everetts was cited for a right of way violation. The roadway was blocked for some time, but is now open for regular traffic.
