OBH Crash

Posted on 28th November 2011 at 08:47

Jared Britton, 22, of Clatskanie is still in critical condition after he suffered multiple fractures in a one-car crash that happened early yesterday morning on Ocean Beach Highway west of Longview. State Troopers say that Britton was the passenger in a car driven by Brandon Warren, 22, of Clatskanie, westbound on the highway at about 2:25 yesterday morning. About three miles west of Longview, Warren apparently lost control of the car, swerving, crossing the oncoming lane and then going off the highway. The car hit a guardrail, a PUD pole and tree before coming to rest down an embankment. Warren suffered fractures in his back, and was taken to Saint John Medical Center; he was treated and released. Britton was taken by LifeFlight to PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center for treatment. Troopers say that the crash was caused by excessive speed, and they also say Warren will be charged with DUI and vehicular assault.
