Band Saw Causes 10 Car Crash

Tuesday around 9:30 p.m. a bandsaw fell off a trailer that was being pulled by a pickup on I-5 southbound near Woodburn.

The driver of the pick-up initially stopped and started to run to the object. Once vehicles started to hit it he turned around, got back into the pick-up, and fled the scene. The driver was only described as a male adult.

In total ten vehicles hit the object. Most of the vehicles received minor damage except for one which flipped several times and the occupant from that vehicle was transported to the hospital with injuries. There were no other injuries reported.

The pick-up was described as a larger style personal vehicle such as a Ford F250 type vehicle.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or who has information, who has not already spoken to police, please call the Oregon State Police at 1(800) 452-7888.
