4 People Hurt in Three-Vehicle Crash on Redwood Highway in the Selma Area

Four people were injured yesterday in a multi-vehicle crash on Redwood Highway near Selma.

On Thursday at 10:42 a.m., the Illinois Valley Fire District, American Medical Response and Oregon State Police were dispatched to the three-vehicle collision on US Highway 199 at Wild Park Lane.

State troopers said a preliminary investigation indicates a Honda Odyssey driven by 66-year-old Randal Roy Town of Cave Junction was traveling north when he lost control on the icy and snow-covered roadway and slid into the opposite travel lane where he struck a southbound Volkswagen van driven by 50-year-old Michael Gonzalez. A southbound Ford Transit van driven by 21-year-old Corban Spangler then struck the Honda.

All four occupants of the involved vehicles were transported by ambulance to Three Rivers Medical Center for treatment of various crash-related injuries. One of the occupants had to be extricated from the wreckage.

The Oregon Department of Transportation pulled the damaged vehicles off the highway and Jerry's Towing responded to haul them to Cave Junction.

Following the investigation, Town was issued either a citation or warning for an unspecified moving violation.
