VIDA: Oregon State Police Troopers and emergency personnel responded to a two-vehicle crash on Hwy 126 last Friday.
According to OSP reports, the accident involved a passenger car hitting a building contractor’s trailer at 7:40 p.m. on August 26th.
Police said 37-year-old Juan Carbajal Rodrigues was driving a black Chevrolet and backing a flatbed trailer loaded with construction material into a driveway. While using the eastbound lane to back up, a construction worker was flagging traffic when an eastbound Acura TSX, operated by 40-year-old Shannon Randall of Leaburg, failed to stop and nearly struck the flagger.
The report said Randall tried to avoid the individual but collided with the back of the trailer.
Randall sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased. The passenger in the Acura, a 17-year-old male from Leaburg, was transported with non-life-threatening injuries to a local hospital. Carbajal Rodrigues was not injured.
Highway 126 was closed for approximately 2 hours.
OSP was assisted on the scene by McKenzie Fire & Rescue and ODOT.
