Depoe Bay Fire was dispatched at 10:02 a.m. to the scene of a two-car accident with one vehicle upside down. One person was sent to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City and the other to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport.

“We send them to different hospitals to spread out the burden,” Depoe Bay Fire Chief Bill Johnson said. “The crews worked well together and got these people out in a hurry. We were able to get Highway 101 traffic flowing quickly.”

Johnson said the two people in the rolled-over vehicle had to be extricated using the Jaws of Life and stabilizers to keep the vehicle from moving.

Depoe Bay Fire, Pacific West Ambulance, North Lincoln Fire and Rescue, Oregon State Police, Lincoln County Sheriff and Oregon Department of Transportation were all involved with handling of the accident.
