Saturday afternoon Tillamook Worksite Troopers responded to a two vehicle, head-on crash on SR Hwy 6, 3 miles west of Lee’s Camp. An eastbound Toyota Matrix, driven by LISA ANNE NORTHROP, 50, from Portland crossed into the westbound lane and collided with a Pontiac G6 driven by AMANDA RAE BARLEEN, 22, from Milwaukie. The right front passenger riding with Northrop was listed as RAYMOND PATRICK BROWN, 46, also from Portland.
Due to the severity of her injuries, NORTHROP was transported via Life Flight helicopter to OHSU. She is currently listed in critical condition. BROWN was transported to Legacy Emanuel Hospital via REACH helicopter. His condition is listed as serious, but stable. BARLEEN was ground transported by Tillamook Regional Medical Center Ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Seatbelts were used by all occupants and air bags deployed in both vehicles.
The investigation is still on going as to why the Matrix crossed over the center line. SR Highway 6 was closed for about four hours.
