Aug. 24: 09:14: Crash, Non-Injury – Hwy. 126E, Milepost 16. Troopers were dispatched to a non-injury, single-vehicle crash. Investigation revealed a White 1998 GMC P35 van was traveling eastbound when for an unknown reason, a White 1999 Ford F350 truck, traveling westbound, crossed into the EB lane of travel. The GMC attempted to avoid colliding with the Ford and drove into the WB ditch, where it came to rest. The operator of the GMC was provided a copy of the crash report. The operator of the GMC contacted his own tow company to assist in removing the GMC from the ditch but believed the vehicle could still be driven. Trooper will attempt to contact the Ford operator to provide a crash report, due to the Ford not being on-scene on law enforcement arrival. Involved Parties: 22-year-old male from Oakridge, 39-year-old male from Eugene.
