Toledo man rescues woman from car after it plunged into Yaquina River off Highway 20

When Glenn Faxon, 49 of Toledo, saw an oncoming Subaru Legacy go out control on a curve just west of Eddyville and plunge into the cold Yaquina River, he couldn’t believe his eyes. But there it was – a car floating upside down in the water with the female driver trying to crawl out a window. Faxon stopped his car and grabbed the only thing he had, which was a set of jumper cables. With the cables in his hand, Faxson took off running down the bank after the woman who was, by then, being swept downstream in the current.

Faxon managed to catch up and flung one end of the jumper cables out toward her. She reached for it and grabbed hold. Faxon then pulled her safely to the bank just as her car slipped beneath the surface.

Back up on the pavement, an arriving ambulance crew checked her out and determined she was not injured. She was identified as Cinthia Spare, 30, also from Toledo.

Lt. Justin McGladrey from the of the Newport Area OSP Command said “Our sincere appreciation goes to Mr. Faxon. Because of the nature of this incident, emergency responders did not have time to reach Ms. Spar. Without Mr. Faxon’s help, the outcome could have been tragic.”

A little later in the day a tow truck, with help from a commercial diver, retrieved Spare’s car from the river.
