Saturday morning emergency responders were dispatched to a head-on crash on Cape Foulweather south of Depoe Bay.
OSP Trooper say a blue Chevy Cavalier, believed operated by Rhonda Messer, age 38, of South Beach, was traveling southbound on US-101 when she lost control of the vehicle and it spun into the northbound lanes. The Cavalier crashed nearly head on into a silver Lincoln passenger car driven by Robert Anthony Franano, age 75, of Newport.
Both Messer and a passenger, Gary Blaine Moore, age 36, of Lincoln City, were ejected from the Cavalier both landing in the ditch on the east side of the roadway. Franano was extricated from the Lincoln by Depoe Bay Fire. All occupants were transported by air ambulance to various hospitals with serious and critical injuries.
US-101 was closed for five and a half hours following the crash. OSP was assisted by ODOT, and Depoe Bay Fire District.
Some sort of impairment is being considered as a contributing factor of the crash.
