A pick up and a car sideswiped each other on the Siletz Highway this morning, injuring three, though not seriously. Preliminary reports indicate the vehicles came together on a straight-away where Yasik Loop at the north end intersects with 229. The pickup went into a tree, the vehicle overturned and went into a ditch.
All occupants either crawled out or were extricated by Toledo Fire Rescue. There were five occupants in the pickup and one in the car. Three were taken by ambulance to PCH in Newport to be evaluated and treated for injuries.
No word on which vehicle crossed the center line. Awaiting details from OSP.
