Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow DAGGETT'S CONDITION STILL CRITICAL


By The Observer

Former Elgin High School athlete and Oregon State University honor-roll student Amy Daggett remains in St. Alphonsus Medical Centers intense care unit in Boise today, her condition still critical.

Daggett, 20 was injured after her full-size pickup truck apparently skidded on the icy Highway 84 north of Island City Dec. 11. The pickup collided head-on with a loaded log truck, sending both vehicles off the highway. The impact ignited a fire that burned both vehicles and part of a storage shed on the edge of the highway.

Daggetts grandmother, Elvera Trump, 77, of Elgin was killed in the accident.

According to Oregon State Police Lt. Reg Madsen, the accident reconstruction report has been completed and revealed nothing new or startling. Driving conditions that morning and Daggetts loss of control were noted in the report.

No other vehicle was determined to have been instrumental in setting off the events of the accident.

Theres nothing to indicate anything else, Madsen said. She (Daggett) was in front of everybody.

In addition to a fund set up at Pioneer Bank to help with her medical expenses, two Elgin basketball games are being played Saturday with a special collection going to aid the Daggett family.

The games feature the current varsity players taking on alumni teams, including players who were teammates of Daggett.

The games start at 2 p.m. with the girls game, followed by the boys game.

No admission will be charged, but donations will be accepted to benefit the Daggetts.

Waiting for word outside the intensive care unit at St. Alphonsus Medical Center this morning are also the family and friends of Enterprise kindergarten teacher Judy Fletcher.

Fletcher, the wife of Observer Wallowa County reporter Gary Fletcher, has remained in a coma since Dec. 18 after collapsing at her home. She, too, is listed as critical.
