A 26-year old Milwaukie-area woman is facing several charges following Wednesday night's injury traffic crash at the Highway 213 and S. Union Mills Road intersection that sent two people to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Oregon State Police (OSP) is investigating the crash.
On July 3, 2013 at approximately 6:38 p.m., a 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup driven by BERENICE MARIN-AVILEZ, age 26, from Milwaukie, was westbound on S. Union Mills Road when MARIN-AVILEZ failed to stop at a stop sign at the Highway 213 intersection. The pickup crashed into a northbound 2006 Ford Expedition driven by ALFREDO MENDOZA QUINTERO, age 51, from Canby.
QUINTERO was transported to Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Two adult passengers, a 48-year old female and 28 year-old male, were not reported injured.
MARIN-AVILEZ's seven-year old daughter, name not available, was also transported to OHSU with non-life threatening injuries. Two other adult passengers, a 46-year old female and 33 year-old male, were not reported injured.
MARIN-AVILEZ had no reported injury. Subsequent to the initial investigation, she was arrested by OSP for DUII, Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering Another Person (3 counts), and Assault in the Fourth Degree (2 counts). She was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
OSP was assisted by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Clackamas County District Attorney's Office, Molalla Police Department, and Molalla Rural Fire Protection District #73. Senior Trooper Jason Bledsoe is the lead investigator.
The highway was closed at the scene for one hour.
