On December 16, 2016, Highway 99E was closed for several hours after a car travelling northbound on Highway 99E crossed into southbound traffic and collided with a southbound vehicle. A 7 year of boy in the northbound car was ejected from the vehicle and was critically injured. He was flown to OHSU where he was treated for head and spinal injuries.
An 11 year of boy in the northbound car was also transported to OHSU and a man and woman in the southbound car were taken by ambulance to Salem Hospital.
Unfortunately, highway speed collisions are too common and are often devastating both physically and emotionally. If you, or a loved one, have been in such a collision it is important that you find a personal injury attorney who can protect you and your rights in your time of need.
