A northbound van on Highway 101 just south of Seal Rock Tuesday morning left the road, rolled over and down a steep embankment. When the van stopped at the bottom, two men were dead, and the driver was terribly injured.
Oregon State Police say that the 1997 Chrysler van with three inside was negotiating a left curve in the road, drifted right and went over the side. At the bottom of the embankment their van hit a tree. One of the men side was ejected. He and the other passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
The van’s 24 year old male driver was pulled out of the wreck and transported by REACH air ambulance to the regional trauma center in Corvallis with serious injuries. Names of the three are expected to be released on Wednesday. OSP says alcohol may have played a factor in the accident.
