ORIGINAL RELEASE FROM 11-01-10:

Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller reports that his deputies are investigating a fatal crash involving a 10-person passenger van in a remote area north of Highway 126.

The Linn County 911 dispatch center received a call at about 9:10 a.m. today, reporting that a 10-person passenger van had crashed approximately 5.5 miles northwest of Blue River Reservoir near the intersection of U.S. Forest Service roads 1510 and 2820. The vehicle had left the roadway and rolled several times about 100 feet down an embankment.

There is one confirmed fatality. Four people were reported to have injuries, and three of those were transported by LifeFlight and Reach helicopters to Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend in Springfield. Five people left the scene for an unknown reason before law enforcement arrived but they later returned or were located. They also were being evaluated by medics.

The embankment is so steep that deputies had to use rope rescue techniques to bring the victims up to the road, where they could be treated and transported by medics.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office is being assisted by Eugene Mountain Rescue, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officers, and the Springfield Police Department. Medics were assisting from Springfield, McKenzie-Blue River and Sweet Home fire departments.

The names of the victims are not available at this time. It is unknown whether the victims were wearing seatbelts or if alcohol was involved.

It was reported that the passengers in the van were a crew from a reforestation contracting company and had been staying in Sweet Home.
