GP Police Cited Motorist for Causing Weekend Crash at 6th & Savage Streets

Grants Pass Police cited a motorist for causing a weekend crash that sent the other driver to the hospital.

According to the Police Department, officers and emergency crews responded to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of NE 6th and Savage streets on Saturday around 4:30 p.m..

Police said a male motorist they identified only as "Striplin" was distracted while driving a Nissan Maxima and ran a red light while traveling south on 6th Street, striking a Honda Civic driven by a female motorist identified only as "Koskellas" who was traveling east on Savage.

Koskellas' vehicle sustained a broken rear axle from the crash and she requested transport to Three Rivers Medical Center because of "severe pain."

Following an investigation, Striplin -- who was not hurt -- was cited for Failure to Obey a Traffic Control Device. It was unclear in the report if his car was towed.
