Crash Investigation graphic

(WOODBURN, Ore.) - A 3-year old girl was seriously injured and her father and 2-year old sister received minor injuries after their vehicle collided with an unoccupied motor home Sunday afternoon northbound along Interstate 5 three miles south of Woodburn. Oregon State Police troopers from the Salem Area Command office are continuing the investigation.

According to OSP Senior Trooper Jay Davis, on October 17, 2010 at approximately 3:00 p.m. a 1990 Dodge Spirit four-door driven by Hassane El Khyari, age 29, from Albany, was northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 268 in the center lane. El Khyari attempted to move from the center lane to the right northbound lane when an unidentified vehicle cut in front of his car while also moving into the right lane.

El Khyari took evasive action onto the right shoulder to avoid the other vehicle and crashed into the back of an unoccupied 1975 Winnebego motorhome parked on the freeway shoulder. Both vehicles received extensive damage.

Hassane El Khyari and his two child passengers were transported by ambulance to Oregon Health Sciences University for treatment. Aliyah El Khyari, age 3, was seriously injured. Hassane and passenger Amirah El Khyari, age 2, received minor injuries. Safety restraint use information is not available at this time.

The other involved unidentified vehicle has not been found. Anyone with information regarding this vehicle is asked to call OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.

The northbound lanes of Interstate 5 were closed about 45 minutes before being opened.

OSP troopers were assisted by Marion County Fire District and ODOT.

Called in the report to 911 immediately after the accident happened. To be clear, "If this is the white car mid 80's possibly a reliant or lebaron type sedan. This idiot was driving like an absolute as**ole. he was right next to me about thirty scond to 45 seconds before he plowed into the RV. My wife was scared when she saw him and made the comment the poor kids hes going to get them hurt. I stayed in the far left lane. He was darting in and out of the middle and right lanes off and on. I looked him in the eyes when he pulled up next to me trying to cut us off however he had no room in front of him so he jetted back off to the right. The last I saw of him until I saw the disaster  of him hittimng that old RV. 
He would be the one to blame as he was putting everyone with himne and around him at risk.
