A Lincoln City woman died at an area hospital following a Friday night single vehicle crash on Highway 101 about four miles south of Depoe Bay.
According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper Greg Plummer, on October 31, 2008 at approximately 8:27 p.m. a 2007 Honda Civic driven by JULIANNA MILLER TAYLOR, age 26, from Lincoln City, was southbound on Highway 101 near milepost 132 when it crossed the centerline and drove off a northbound embankment striking a tree head-on.
TAYLOR was not using safety restraints and was pinned in the car. Fire and rescue personnel from Newport Fire & Rescue and Depoe Bay Fire & Rescue worked for 45 minutes to extricate her using the Jaws of Life. She was transported by Pacific West Ambulance to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital where she died that evening from her injuries.
OSP troopers from the Newport Area Command office are continuing the investigation.
Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Newport Fire & Rescue, Depoe Bay Fire & Rescue, ODOT and Pacific West Ambulance assisted at the scene.
