Collision on OR 140W Leads to Fatal Injuries

Date: June 28, 2013
Location: Oregon 140W, Lakeview
Names: Alice Hancock, Larry Holloway, Sheila Holloway

A woman was killed and several others were injured in a two car collision on Oregon 140W on Friday, June 28.

Alice Hancock, 79, of Lakeview, was traveling north on Padgett Road. She stopped her 2001 Volkswagen at a stop sign at an intersection. She then pulled onto the road and drove directly into the path of another vehicle. The 2003 Dodge Intrepid she pulled in front of, driven by 59-year-old Larry Holloway, of Lakeview, collided with her vehicle.

Hancock was transported to Lake District Hospital, where she later died of her injuries. Holloway and his wife, Sheila Holloway, were also taken to the hospital. Their injuries were reported to be minor. There did not appear to be any other passengers in either vehicle.

Police report that the Holloways were both wearing seatbelts, though the seatbelt use in Hancock’s vehicle was not confirmed. The airbags in both of the vehicles deployed during the accident.

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Alice Hancock. We are very sorry for your loss. We would also like to extend our best wishes for a fast and full recovery to Sheila and Larry Holloway. We hope you suffer no permanent injuries as a result of this accident.

After an auto accident remember to:

Take care of your body:

  • Get medical treatment and keep treating until stable.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for referrals and to seek out doctors you can trust.
  • Keep all of your medical bills and medical records relating to the crash.

Collect evidence:

  • Take photos at the scene of your car, their car, your injuries, and anything else that seems relevant.
  • When you get home, write down any details you remember after the accident.
  • File an Oregon Traffic and Insurance Report within 72 hours of the accident. Keep your copy.
  • Get a copy of your police report (if one was filed).
  • Keep track of the damage done to your vehicle and document repairs with photos.
  • Do not give recorded statements to any insurance company without talking to a competent Portland car accident attorney.

Protect your rights:

This process can feel confusing and overwhelming, especially when you are in pain and worried about your financial wellbeing. Remember, you can always contact an Oregon personal injury attorney for a free consultation and evaluation of your case if you need help.
