(SALEM, Ore.) - Police say two people were injured Friday morning when a van's driver lost control, crossed the center median and rolled into the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 about 1/2 mile north of the Highway 22 overpass in Salem. According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Recruit Trooper James Ward, on September 17, 2010 at approximately 7:58 a.m. a Chevrolet Express van with two occupants was southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 254 when the driver lost control due to a possible tire problem.
The driver, 17-year old David Snegireff of Gervais, over-corrected, crossed the center median and travelled into the northbound lanes where it rolled at least once before coming to rest on its wheels. Snegireff and passenger, 23-year old Edgar Garcia Vazquez of Woodburn, were transported by ambulance to Salem Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Both individuals were using safety restraints.
Two northbound lanes were closed for one hour while OSP troopers from the Salem Area Command office investigated and Salem Fire Department and ODOT Hazardous Materials Spill Response cleaned up about 20 gallons of spilled paint.
