According to Lieutenant Doug Ladd, on May 22, 2013 at approximately 11:20 a.m., a commercial truck driven by STANLEY McHUGILL, age 63, from Sutherlin, was exiting the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 at exit 112. A 2001 Dodge Stratus two-door with 2 teen occupants from California traveling on Old Highway 99S failed to stop at a stop sign, drove into the truck's path and was struck in the driver's side.
The Dodge's 17-year old female driver, NATASHA HASTINGS from Redondo Beach, California, was not using safety restraints and received serious injuries. She was extricated by firefighters and initially transported by ambulance to Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, then transferred to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield where she is in critical condition. The 18-year old female passenger, GABRIELLE SWAIN also from Redondo Beach, was using safety restraints and received minor injuries. Airbags deployed in their car.
McHUGILL was not injured. He was using safety restraints.
OSP troopers from the Roseburg Area Command office are investigating. Local emergency responders and ODOT assisted at the scene.
OSP reminds drivers and passengers that we are in midst of the "Click It or Ticket" campaign that runs through June 2. All vehicles occupants are urged to use safety restraints because it is the single most effective way to protect vehicle occupants involved in a crash from injury or death. More information about the May campaign and increased enforcement effort is available on our website at http://www.oregon.gov/osp/NEWSRL/Pages/news/05_15_2013_click_it_or_ticket.aspx.
