PORTLAND — Oregon State Police have identified six of seven people who were injured in an accident on U.S. Highway 26 at the state Highway 212 interchange in Boring on Wednesday.
Three were taken to area hospitals.
OSP said the accident happened about 2:50 p.m. amid a hail storm. Justin Damerville, 26, of Portland was traveling west in a 1998 Toyota 4Runner. In the left lane of U.S. 26 near milepost 20, he lost control of the vehicle, which spun sideways across the grass median and crashed into the front of an eastbound 2012 Toyota RAV sport utility vehicle driven by Rodger Wiseman, 60, of Sandy, OSP said.
After the collision, the 4Runner collided head-on into an eastbound 2012 Hyundai driven by Kimberly Wooten, 44, of Sandy. The 4Runner then traveled off the south side of the highway and rolled onto its side in the grass.
Wooten, who was alone, was taken by ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, where she was listed in serious condition Thursday.
A rear passenger in the RAV, Mary Solometo, 59, of Riverside, Calif., was also taken to Emanuel. She was in fair condition Thursday, according to a spokeswoman.
Wiseman and his other passengers, Mary Wiseman, 59, of Sandy, and Richard Solometo, 67, were injured but not taken for treatment.
Damerville received minor injuries, OSP said. His 7-month-old son was taken to Mt. Hood Medical Center for examination.
All the adults were using seat belts, and the child was in a child safety seat, officials said.
Damerville reported to police that an unidentified white pickup headed west in the right lane hit the right rear of his vehicle, causing him to lose control.
