Car Accident Pins Victims beneath Vehicle in Oregon

A 2000 Oldsmobile slid off the edge of an icy Oregon highway, crashing nearly 150 below on Saturday, January 26. Two of the vehicle’s four occupants were ejected in the early morning car accident. One suffered minor injuries, but the second victim’s head was pinned beneath the wreckage.

The driver was able to flag down a passing car for help. That person had to climb a hill to get cell phone service in order to call 911.

Rescue workers and volunteers used a rappelling system to reach the victim who was pinned, and managed to get the car off of her. She was then roped up to the road and sent by ambulance to Portland. 

One of the perils of driving during the winter and spring months in most of the country is slick roads and highways. Every year people suffer serious personal injury or death due to road conditions. Some things you can do to avoid car accidents on slick roads include watch the weather; pay attention for icy spots on the roads, especially near bridges and overpasses; go slower than you usually would; watch out for other drivers.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced car accident lawyer in your area today.
