10am Two vehicles collided this morning on Highway 101 at milepost 157, just south of Waldport. One vehicle is on its side. Heavy damage to the other vehicle. Initially, Lifeflight was scheduled to airlift the injured to a hospital, but the patients’ condition was determined not to be serious enough for an air ambulance.
10:05am Highway 101 is shut down in both directions at the north end of Governor Patterson State Park.
10:15am To get around the bad wreck…if you’re headed south on 101 and coming across the Waldport Bridge, turn left onto Highway 34 and watch for the NE Crestline Drive sign. Turn right onto NE Crestline Drive and follow it waaaaaaaay down to where it becomes Wakonda Beach Road. Follow Wakonda Beach Road to Highway 101. Turn left to go south on 101 or turn right to go north on 101.
10;22am Traffic is now being slowly directed through the crash scene. For those traveling south you might want to take the right-above (10:15am) to avoid big back-ups.
