EARLIER: Saturday, June 25, 2016, 11:55 p.m.

At 2:38 a.m. on Saturday, June 25, 2016, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received multiple 911 calls about a traffic crash near the intersection of S Redland Rd. and S Bradley Rd. in unincorporated Oregon City.

Callers reported that two vehicles had crashed head-on at a high rate of speed -- and that there were multiple patients who had sustained severe injuries.

A short time later, a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office sergeant arrived on-scene and began to render medical aid to the injured individuals.

Over the next several minutes, multiple Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at the scene and -- with the help of the Clackamas Fire District and American Medical Response --  triaged the patients.

Two of the involved individuals were pronounced dead at the scene, and an additional patient died while enroute to the hospital.

At this writing (June 25, 2016, 11:55 p.m.), two patients are currently at local hospitals, where they are being treated for serious injuries.

All of the individuals involved have been positively identified, but their identities are being withheld until all of family notifications have been completed.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Team (CRAFT) and Sheriff's Office detectives also responded to the crash scene.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation -- but initial reports indicate that speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors.

The Sheriff's Office thanks all the good samaritans who stopped to help deliver medical aid to those involved until first responders arrived. The Sheriff's Office would also like to thank Clackamas Fire District #1, American Medical Response, and Life Flight for their outstanding response to the crash scene.

The Sheriff's Office wants to remind the public to drive carefully and to make plans to stay the night or use a designated driver if you or a loved one consume any intoxicating substance.
