Early Sunday morning a van crashed on I-84 about 12 miles west of North Powder in Ladd Canyon.
A white 2002 Chevrolet Express van crashed in Union County with seven people inside.
Ruben V. Garcia, 24, of Salem was pronounced dead at the scene and the other six were taken to the hospital.
Police believe icy conditions on the road may have contributed to the cause of the crash.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the dead person and wish everyone else involved a full and speedy recovery.
Accidents like this are commonly caused by wet roads and ice. When these conditions occur, you need to be especially careful. Unfortunately, in most cases these accidents are considered the fault of the driver. In some cases, the accident may have been caused by poor road conditions, other drivers’ bad judgment, or another reason not readily apparent. Personal injury lawyers have experience with these types of investigations, or you can hire a personal investigator with experience in auto crashes.
Even if the insurance company finds you at fault, you can still pursue getting your medical bills and wage loss paid through your PIP policy coverage. If you need help dealing with the insurance company, or just want to discuss your legal options for ensuring that your damages are paid, our Portland personal injury lawyers can help.
