Semi vs. Trailer Accident Near Arlington Sends Man to the Hospital
ARLINGTON, Or. - Oregon State Police are investigating a semi-truck accident near Arlington that sent the truck's driver to the hospital Wednesday morning.
Troopers say the driver, 41-year-old Christopher Fitzgerald from Keizer, OR was driving a semi carrying cattle grain on Interstate 84, when he missed the entrance to a rest stop and went through a chain link fence into the rest area.
Police say the truck missed several garbage cans, but crashed into the back of a semi-trailer parked against a curb.
Troopers say the trailer's driver, 60-year-old Gary Anderson from Salem, was lying in the sleeper area of the trailer, when the crash tossed him against a wall, causing minor injuries.
Paramedics airlifted Fitzgerald to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. Troopers say Fitzgerald had been wearing a seat belt, but a medical problem may have contributed to the cause of the accident.
