At 8:32 pm, TVF&R firefighters arrived at the scene of a serious motor vehicle accident involving a semi-truck and a car at SW Stafford Rd. and SW Ek Rd. in West Linn.

Upon arrival, firefighter medics from TVF&R’s Truck 56 began the process of extricating a single female patient from the sedan. LifeFlight was activated to respond. While Station 56 firefighters and members of TVF&R’s Technical Rescue Team from Tigard Station 51 worked to extricate and treat the patient, additional firefighters from Station 57 prepared a landing zone for LifeFlight in a nearby church parking lot.

One patient was transported via LifeFlight with serious injuries to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is currently at the scene working to determine the cause of the accident.

As the unofficial kick-off for summer, Memorial Day weekend is one of the heaviest for traffic, which translates into more traffic accidents. TVF&R urges citizens to exercise extra caution while driving this weekend. You can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website at nhtsa.gov for summer driving tips for safe travel during the holiday weekend and summer months.
