Cascadia crash injures five

A single-car collision in Cascadia Sunday afternoon sent all five occupants to hospitals, one by Life Flight, authorities said.

Emergency personnel from Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District responded at about 3:20 p.m. to a report of the crash, at Milepost 42, between Doe Mountain and Dobbin Creek Road, on eastbound Highway 20.

The Ford Taurus, driven by Tyler Anthony Lincoln, 27, of Eugene, left the highway, struck a culvert and rolled over, before landing upright off the highway, striking a tree in the process.

One passenger was transported to Samaritan Regional Medical Center by a Life Flight helicopter, while Lincoln and the three other passengers were taken to other hospitals by SHFAD and Lebanon Fire District ambulances. One was later transported to OHSU, said J.T. Weld of SHFAD.

Two passengers were children, one an infant and the other aged 5. Also injured were passengers Harold Collins Titus, 71, and Lana Leann Titus, 25.
