Wheel off

A 30-year-old Seaside man was involved in a car accident May 28 at 11:03 a.m. on U.S. Highway 30 and Ivy Station Road in Knappa. The front driver side of his pickup traveling westbound came off and struck the front driver’s side wheel of an SUV traveling eastbound, causing it to blow. The driver of the SUV was a 46-year-old man from Troutdale. No injuries were reported but there was mechanical damage. Both drivers called for their own assistance.

Hits utility pole

A 57-year-old Seaside man traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 103 approaching a very sharp curve at Pope-Meeker Lane on May 28 at 12:19 a.m., encountered an Elsie-Vinemaple fire truck traveling southbound with its siren displayed and emergency lights on. The driver panicked near the curve and steered to the left, went off the pavement, slid on gravel, and hit a utility pole. The driver suffered no injuries and there was no contact between the vehicles. The driver of the fire engine stopped and remained on scene. Gary’s Towing removed the Seaside man’s SUV; he called someone to pick him up. West Oregon Electric responded to assess the pole and schedule replacement.

It was a non-injury crash and one truck was drivable. The other was towed by Gary’s Towing at the owner’s request.

Too many clams
