Tragic car accident kills three teenagers in Salem, OR


On June 2, 2019, three teenage girls were killed by a drunk driver who struck their vehicle after he sped through a red light at the intersection of Salem Parkway and Cherry Avenue.  The driver of a Jeep Wrangler had been driving northeast on Salem Parkway where he ran a red light and crashed into a Toyota Camry which had been traveling south. 

All three teenagers occupying the Toyota Camry were tragically killed as a result of the collision.  The three teenaged girls had all lived locally and attended school in the Salem/Keizer area.  This was truly a heartbreaking and unnecessary loss for family, friends and the entire Salem/Keizer community. 

Sadly, deadly car accidents occur too frequently in the Willamette Valley and result in immeasurable damage to individuals’ lives and our community as a whole.  Nothing can undo the harm caused by such accidents, but Adams, Hill & Hess is committed to protecting those who are harmed and to holding the individuals responsible for these accidents accountable.
