Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Saturday evening's two-vehicle serious injury crash that occurred on Highway 213 at the Toliver Road intersection near Molalla. Two teenagers were injured, one seriously.

On July 13, 2013 at approximately 7:50 p.m., a 1995 Ford Explorer driven by SARAH MUSGROVE, age 18, from Molalla, attempted to turn left (southbound) onto Highway 213 when it was struck in the driver's side by a northbound commercial truck pulling a semi-trailer.
