Report of a traffic crash just south of Waldport on 101 near Waconda Beach Road. No word yet on extent of the crash of if there are any injuries.
Someone on scene reports to 9-1-1 dispatch that a woman inside is complaining of back pain.
Arriving fire-rescue personnel report it’s a single vehicle off the road. Checking for injuries.
Reports from the scene indicate that the woman is trapped inside the vehicle and will likely have to be extricated with Jaws of Life or other such equipment.
The woman was removed from her car, placed in an ambulance and soon was on her way to PCH in Newport. No word on what caused her to lose control of her vehicle. The deep ditches along 101 between Waldport and Yachats snag many cars because they’re right off the pavement and they have steep slopes. Once wheels are caught, the ditches don’t usually let go.
