Oregon State Police say a Toledo woman was badly injured in a single car rollover accident a mile north of Siletz on Highway 229 at around 10am Thursday morning. Troopers say Sarah McElroy, 31, was headed northbound coming out of a curve when, for some reason, she straightened out, crossed over into the left lane, left the road and plowed into a berm of dirt with a tree stump in the middle of it.
The impact caused her Honda Accord to bounce off, flip, and come to rest on its top. McElroy was removed from the wreck by fire rescue personnel and was transported by ambulence to PCH in Newport. However, when she was assessed as having worse injuries than initially believed, she was helicoptered to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. No word yet on safety belts or why she lost control of her vehicle.Share on Facebook
