Driver safe in Camp Creek crash

In Leaburg, spikes stopped speeder

A 17-year-old female was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries on May 22nd following an accident at 7:10 p.m. The single-occupant wreck involved a 2005 Ford F250 pickup and occurred at Milepost 1 of Camp Creek Road.

Investigators report the truck was traveling westbound when it failed to negotiate a curve. It crossed over the oncoming eastbound lane and struck a concrete barrier. The truck then flipped and came to rest on its roof in the eastbound lane.

The day before, at about 6:14 p.m., an LCSO deputy observed a gold Honda Accord traveling westbound on McKenzie Hwy. near milepost 53 at approximately 93 m.p.h. The vehicle passed several other vehicles in a corner and no-passing lane. The deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop but the driver continued fleeing westbound at a high rate of speed.

Spikes were successfully deployed near Holden Creek Lane and the driver lost control and drove off of the roadway shortly after. She was uninjured and taken into custody without further incident. 38-year-old Lindsey Abigail Williston of Florence was lodged at the Lane County Jail on charges of Elude by Vehicle and Reckless Driving.
