Oregon State Law enforcement (OSP) report a Clatskanie resident escaped personal injury following a multi-car or truck, really serious harm crash in Douglas County that claimed a single lifetime.
According to OSP, at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, OSP troopers and emergency personnel responded to the crash on Highway 38 in the vicinity of milepost 25.
Preliminary investigation exposed a tan Toyota Corolla, operated by Cedric Lossing (24) of Myrtle Place, was traveling east overtaking a motorhome in the passing lanes when it crossed the centerline and crashed head on into a westbound Jeep Cherokee, operated by Cathy Fore (60) of North Bend.
A purple Peterbilt dump truck, operated by David Buoy (60) of Clatskanie, was touring westbound next the Jeep Cherokee and tried to steer clear of the collision by steering into the eastbound lane in which it crashed by means of an eastbound bumper-pulled Winnebago travel trailer pulled by a Grey Ford F150, operated by Timothy Prulheire (70) of Grants Pass. The grey Ford F150 traveled into the westbound lane in which it collided with a blue Kenworth dump truck, operated by Dillan Bloomer (27) of Clark Fork, Idaho, pulling a flatbed utility trailer hauling a grader.
Cedric Lossing was transported to RiverBend Medical center in Eugene. Cathy Fore and a passenger in the Jeep, Patrick Culbertson (70) of Myrtle Point, were being transported to RiverBend Clinic in Eugene. Patrick Culbertson sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at RiverBend. David Buoy and Dillon Bloomer were being unhurt. Timothy Prulheire and his passenger, Joan Prulhiere (81) of Grants Move, claimed minor damage but declined health care cure at the scene.
Highway 38 targeted visitors remained open up though OSP Collision Reconstruction Unit associates investigated the scene.
OSP was assisted by Scottsburg Fireplace Division, Achieve Air Ambulance, North Douglas Hearth and Ambulance, Kellogg Fire Division, Elkton Hearth Department and ODOT.
