Last night 01/01/16, around 1:30 a.m., Deputies were called to investigate a crash that took place on Fernridge Road SE and Siegmund Road SE near Stayton. When Deputies arrived they found a Nissan passenger car torn into two pieces.
The driver who was pinned inside of the vehicle was extricated by firefighters and transported immediately to Stayton Memorial Hospital and later flown to OHSU. Timothy Colblentz, 17 of Stayton is in critical condition but expected to survive his injuries.
Deputies determined that Mr. Colblentz was on his way home from a gathering with friends when he left the roadway & struck a tree, which cut the car into two pieces. Deputies believe speed was the only contributing factor to this crash and no citations have been issued.
