(SALEM, Ore. ) - Oregon State Police are continuing their investigation into Monday afternoon's three vehicle traffic crash that resulted in serious injury to one person along Enchanted Way SE near the entrance to the Enchanted Forest theme park in Turner.

The injured driver, 50-year-old Gerald R. Luttrell, from SE Salem, is in critical condition. Oregon State Police spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings says alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor for the crash.
