A Damascus-area man is facing DUII and other possible charges following an early Sunday morning single vehicle rollover injury crash along Highway 224 about two miles east of Estacada.
On June 30, 2013 at approximately 5:00 a.m., a 2002 Toyota Tundra 4-door pickup driven by KYLE E. ELGIN, age 24, from Damascus, was westbound on Highway 224 near milepost 27 when he lost control, traveled into the north side ditch, and rolled coming to rest on its side.
ELGIN was transported by LifeFlight to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with serious injuries. He was not using safety restraints.
The three passengers were also injured and transported to hospitals with minor injuries. Passenger KYLE VOLPEL, age 23, from Oregon City, was taken by ground ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. Passengers SHON SHIIKI, age 22, from Gresham, and SARA ERICKSON, age 19, from Oregon City, were taken by ground ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University. The passengers were using safety restraints.
Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers from the Portland Area Command Office are continuing the investigation and will forward it to the Clackamas County District Attorney's Office for consideration of additional charges. ELGIN was cited for DUII. Trooper Tracy Clark is the lead investigator.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Estacada Rural Fire District #69, AMR ambulance, and ODOT.
