Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are investigating a Wednesday afternoon single vehicle rollover traffic crash westbound Interstate 84 about one mile east of Troutdale.
Information provided to OSP indicated this was a fatality after the driver was flown from the scene toward a Portland area hospital but that information was wrong.
On August 25, 2010 at approximately 2:25 p.m. a white Ford four-door pickup driven by Damion Louis Wilson, 39, from Portland, was westbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 19 when it traveled into the grass center median and crashed into a directional arrow message trailer position on the inside shoulder at the entry point to a highway work zone area.
The pickup traveled back across the westbound lanes and rolled several times coming to rest on its wheels about 50 feet off the right highway shoulder.
Wilson was transported to Oregon Health Sciences University by LifeFlight with serious injuries. Safety restraint use information is not confirmed.
OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Multnomah County Sheriff's Office deputies, ODOT and local fire personnel responded to assist.
