Serious injury traffic crash happened on Highway 34 east of Interstate 5.
(LEBANON, Ore.) - Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are investigating a Sunday morning two-vehicle serious injury traffic crash that occurred at the intersection of Highway 34 and Seven Mile Lane east of Interstate 5.
Troopers say four people were injured, one critically, and alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor. According to OSP Senior Trooper Brad Hales, Sunday at approximately 8:22 a.m. a black 2003 Nissan Maxima driven by 29-year old Alimpiada Kalugin of Homer, Alaska was northbound on Seven Mile Lane when it failed to stop at the stop sign at the Highway 34 intersection.
As the Nissan drove across Highway 34 it was struck in the passenger side by a westbound white 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by 24-year old Kippy Ann Hudson of Lebanon.
Hales says the Nissan spun around north and collided a second time on the passenger side into a large tree on the west side of Seven Mile Lane.
The Pontiac traveled off the west side of Seven Mile Lane and came to rest in a ditch.
Kalugin and her passenger, 28-year old Timofae Jack Martisheff of Seaside, were extricated by fire personnel from Albany, Lebanon, and Tangent fire departments.
Martisheff was taken by REACH air ambulance first to Corvallis Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and then to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland with critical injuries.
Kalugin was transported by ground ambulance to Samaritan Albany General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Kippy Hudson was transported by ground ambulance to Corvallis Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
Passenger Bryon E. Hudson of Lebanon who is 35, was transported by ground ambulance to Samaritan Albany General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. OSP troopers from the Albany Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Safety restraint use is pending confirmation.
The multi-agency Linn County Major Accident Investigation Team responded to assist. ODOT and Linn County Sheriff's Office also assisted at the scene. One westbound lane of Highway 34 and Seven Mile Lane were closed for about 5 hours during the investigation.
