Wife Finds Seriously Injured Husband Following Overnight DUII Crash Near CanbySalem-News.com
Police say the man talked to his wife prior to 2:30 AM and was enroute home, after getting off work at a Canby-areas restaurant.
(CANBY, Ore.) - A Portland-area man was found seriously injured by his wife Tuesday morning in a field near a church following an alcohol-involved overnight single vehicle crash along Highway 99E north of Canby.
Oregon State Police Recruit Trooper Dessa DeForest says around 7:15 AM, a report was received of a vehicle in an open field next to the Church of the Nazarene east of Highway 99E near E. Territorial Road.
"Police and fire personnel responded to the scene and found a 1990 Jeep Cherokee with a seriously injured male driver inside about 125 feet off the highway."
DeForest says the driver, identified as 25-year old Luis Miguel Robles of Southeast Portland, was transported by LifeFlight to Legacy Emanuel Hospital for treatment.
Preliminary investigation indicates Robles talked to his wife prior to 2:30 AM and was enroute home after getting off work at a Canby-areas restaurant earlier in the evening, DeForest said.
"Roadway evidence shows his Jeep was northbound near milepost 18 when it drove off the right shoulder into a ditch, struck a sign and a tree, then spun around and finally came to a stop in the open field. His wife reported the crash this morning after finding Robles seriously injured in his vehicle."
Subsequent to the investigation, Robles was cited by Recruit Trooper DeForest to appear in Clackamas County Circuit Court for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants.
OSP troopers were assisted at the scene by Canby Police Department and Canby Fire Department.
