Speed A Probable Factor In Fatal Oregon Crash (PICTURES)
We've heard it time and time again, the need for watching speed when driving--especially on freeways and highways.
Speed may have been a factor in the death of a 33 year old Washington resident, who died Thursday morning after a fatal headon crash near Wasco OR on Highway 97. Oregon State Patrol officers said the WA driver collided with a pickup truck at the intersection of Highway 97 and Mud Hollow Road. The truck driver survived the crash, but the driver of the other vehicle, a 1994 Ferrari 384 coupe did not survive. He was pronounced dead at Mid-Columbia Medical Center two hours after the accident.
While both drivers were wearing seat belts, witnesses and reports from the scene indicated the speed of the Ferrari could have had an effect on the both the crash happening, and the driver fatality. To reinforce what such speed can do, we have included pictures from the Oregon State Patrol from the scene.
Just make sure you drive safety, buckle up, and watch out for "the other guy."
