9-1-1 Dispatcher Karen Greenstein's vehicle after head-on with drunk driver.

9-1-1 Dispatcher Karen Greenstein’s vehicle after head-on with drunk driver.


An attorney for the family of a killed southern Oregon 9-1-1 dispatcher has filed suit for ten million dollars against the state for issuing the man, who caused her death, a driver’s license.

The accused errant driver, Richard Scott of Grants Pass, was driving drunk and the wrong way on Interstate 5 when he hit Greenstein’s vehicle head-on, according to the OSP. Greenstein was killed but Scott survived – although severely injured.

Under Oregon law, the state DMV cannot issue anyone a driver’s license if they have pending offenses while driving in another state – in this case California.
