Please reference Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Case #12-17511
At about 4:21 p.m. on June 11, 2012, Clackamas County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to S. Mulino Road and SE 13th Avenue in Canby after callers to 911 reported that a car had crashed into a railroad trestle, injuring the driver.
Ms. Lewis' car had crashed into an Oregon Railroad trestle at the intersection after she swerved to avoid rear-ending another car.
An Oregon Railroad representative arrived at the scene, examined the damage, and reported to deputies that the trestle would need to be repaired before it could be used.
S. Mulino Road was closed for about two hours while the crash was investigated and the trestle was checked for stability.
