At about 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 9, Clackamas County deputies investigated a crash involving three cars and a travel trailer near milepost 52 on Highway 26. No one was injured. Eastbound traffic lanes were blocked for a short period of time.
A 1994 Honda Accord operated by George Sekavec, age 26, from Hutchinson, Kansas, was driving westbound on Highway 26 near Milepost 52 when he lost control and went into eastbound lanes of travel.
He collided with a 1984 Dodge flatbed truck traveling eastbound pulling a travel trailer driven by Mr. Kim Woltring, age 54,from Colton. The Honda struck the towed travel trailer, causing substantial damage.
A third vehicle -- a 1985 VW Vanagon driven by Terri Curtis, age 56, from Vancouver, WA -- was also traveling westbound. She lost control in the same spot as the Honda and also struck the travel trailer.
Fortunately, no one was injured. Deputies did not find any evidence of anyone driving impaired. No citations were issued.
Driving remains the leading cause of accidental death and injury. The Sheriff's Office encourages safe and responsible driving by minding speed limits and paying close attention to the road conditions.
