Idaho man injured in crash near Elgin

An Idaho man was injured Tuesday afternoon in a single vehicle rollover crash along Highway 82 near Elgin in Northeast Oregon. Oregon State Police is continuing the investigation into the cause.

 

According to Senior Trooper Jed Stone at approximately 3:40 p.m., a 2008 Pontiac driven by Tom Swiderski, 49, of Wendell, Idaho, was westbound on Highway 82 near milepost 21. For an unknown reason, the vehicle crossed the highway and traveled off the south side shoulder where it went up an embankment and struck two large rocks. The vehicle overturned onto its top from where Swiderski was extricated from it by Elgin Rural Fire Protection District.

Swiderski, who was using safety restraints, was transported by ambulance to Grande Ronde Memorial Hospital by Elgin EMS with non-life threatening injuries. A medical-related problem may have been a contributing factor in this crash.

OSP was assisted at the scene by ERFPD, Elgin EMS, Union County Sheriff's Office and ODOT.
