Fatal Traffic Crash - Highway 30 east of RainierSalem-News.com
(RAINIER, Ore.) - One person is confirmed deceased Tuesday morning following a two-vehicle fatal traffic crash on Highway 30 about three miles east of Rainier. Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers report Highway 30 is completely blocked and may be for several hours.
A suggested detour for northbound and southbound traffic that needs to travel through this area on Highway 30 is to use the Longview/Kelso bridge and Interstate 5 routes. An alternative route to get to or from the Oregon coast is to use Highway 26.
According to OSP Master Sergeant Larry Lucas, preliminary information indicates on November 30, 2010 at approximately 6:00 a.m. a sport utility vehicle driven by an adult male was northbound on Highway 30 near milepost 43 when it drifted onto the shoulder.
The driver over-corrected to the left into the southbound lane where it collided head-on with a large truck. The sport utility vehicle's driver was ejected and pronounced deceased at the scene. The truck's driver was not injured.
No more information will be released until later today following the on-scene investigation and attempts to notify next of kin.
OSP troopers are being assisted at the scene by ODOT and Columbia River Fire & Rescue.
