Salem Crash Critically Injures 16-Year-Old

Marion County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a crash Saturday morning near Elma Avenue Southeast and Marht Avenue Southeast.

It happened at 4:51 a.m.

The details as to what exactly occurred are still under investigation, but initial information is a black Ford Explorer was traveling east on Marht, went through the intersection at Elma and collided with a black Toyota pickup.  

It appears there were two people in the Ford and one person in the Toyota.  The Marion County Sheriff's Office CRASH Team is investigating.  

One person involved in the crash, a 16-year-old male, was transported by ambulance to Salem Hospital with significant and potentially life threatening injuries.  

The driver of one of the vehicles was contacted away from the crash scene a short time after deputies arrived.

Deputies believe speed was at least partially at cause of the accident.
