An early afternoon crash on Highway 101 just south of Newport sent multiple persons to the hospital, at least one with very serious injuries. Initial reports indicate that a northbound SUV crossed over the center line and hit an oncoming car head on inside the big curve just south of South Beach State Park. The female driver in the car was trapped inside her car’s wreckage as Newport Fire Rescue extracated her with steel jaws and power saws. She was rushed to PCH for an evaluation of her serious injuries as part of an assessment in order to send her to a valley or Portland area trauma center. No word on the extend of injuries to the person in the SUV.

Traffic was backed up for more than an hour on that very busy stretch of 101. After the wreck was cleared, at around 2:05PM, traffic began moving in both directions. Names and hometowns of those involved were not immediately released.
