Report of a traffic crash on Highway 20, well east of Toledo. There is some confusion as to the exact milepost, but one report has it as between Sam’s Creek Road and Elk City Road.
Reports now say that it’s a head-on collision between a pickup and a sedan.
Reports say there is one elderly woman on the ground. Both vehicles are in a ditch. Life Flight is at the ready to launch if needed.
Traffic is backing up in both directions for quite a ways. Emergency responders arriving on scene report that the crash is closer to Elk City Road, west of Eddyville.
Reports from the scene say there is only one crash victim to be transported to the hospital. Life Flight not needed.
Elderly patient is being transported by ambulance to the Corvallis trauma center.
ODOT is on scene to direct traffic through the crash area. Traffic is very congested. It will take some time to get all the backed up traffic through there. Depending on your schedule, it might be advisable to just wait a while before you head east on Highway 20 or take Highway 34 out of Waldport, or from the north, take Highway 18 to connecting highways north of Salem.
