Two-Car Collision Leads to Tractor-Trailer Accident
McKenzie (October 5) — At approximately 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 5, a two-vehicle collision occurred on the north bound lanes of State Route 22 in McKenzie near the intersection of the highway and Dr. Smith Lane.
A 2016 Kenworth box truck was south bound on State Route 22. Following the incident in the north bound lanes, two vehicles had slowed and almost stopped in both the south bound lanes while they were looking at the crash across the median in the north bound lanes.
The truck driver, Mylon Lynn of McMinnville, did not see them stopped in time and swerved into the emergency lane to avoid a collision with the vehicles. Lynn lost control of the vehicle and traveled back across the south bound lanes and into the median where it turned over on its passenger side. The truck and trailer slid into the north bound lanes and came to final rest in the second and emergency lanes.
