Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into a single vehicle fatal traffic crash on Highway 30 west of Clatskanie that resulted in the death of a Pierce County, Washington man last Thursday. A possible medical-related problem may have been a contributing factor in this crash.
According to OSP Trooper Jessica Spurlock, on July 1, 2010 at approximately 11:28 a.m. a 1985 Toyota pickup driven by HARVEY JOHN HOGLUND, age 75, from Lake Tapps, Washington was westbound on Highway 30 near milepost 67. For an unknown reason, the pickup crossed the eastbound lane onto the south side shoulder, struck a power pole and then rolled several times.
HOGLUND was pronounced deceased at the scene. Safety restraint use information not available.
The power pole was extensively damaged and replaced by Clatskanie PUD.
OSP troopers were assisted at the scene by Clatskanie Police Department, Clatskanie Fire & Rescue, and ODOT.
