(SCAPOOSE, Ore.) - Police say a two-vehicle crash this morning on Highway 30 two miles south of Scappoose injured fourteen people. One of the involved vehicles, a worker transport bus, had eleven occupants. The pickup involved in the crash had three occupants.

According to Oregon State Police Senior Trooper Randy Fargher, this morning at approximately 6:15 AM a worker transport bus with eleven Hispanic occupants was on Highway 30 approaching the intersection with Rocky Point Road when the two left rear wheels came off.

The vehicle's driver, 33-year old Moises Lara-Garcia, pulled the vehicle into the center left continuous turn lane median and stopped.

A Ford F250 pickup driven by 26-year old Jaramillo Gonzalez with two other occupants was westbound and struck one of the wheels, causing the pickup to veer to the left into the center median and crash into the back of the transport bus.

Multiple emergency response agencies responded to the scene including five ambulances. The fourteen occupants were transported to Legacy Emanuel Hospital, Oregon Heath Sciences University, Providence Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Mack, How do you know they were all illegal? just because they were hispanics? so if they were whites, then we could say: they were all meth heads? Ah Well...

sounds like they were all illegal aliens. But of course the officers could not check because of the losers who run the state tie their hands from asking such questions.
