News Release
LCSO Case #22-6607 -- Motor Vehicle Crash (Fatal) - 11/29/22

On November 27, 2022 just before 9:30pm, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a two-vehicle crash on Coburg Rd. near the McKenzie View intersection. 

Preliminary investigation reveals that a black 2002 Ford F150 had been traveling southbound on Coburg Rd. when it crossed into the oncoming northbound lane and struck a silver 2000 Mazda Protegé sedan.  The driver of the Mazda, 53-year-old Cerina Anne McPherson of Coos Bay, died as a result of the crash.  A passenger in the Mazda was treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries. 

The driver of the F150 fled the scene on foot prior to police arrival.  Law enforcement personnel flooded the area and located him approximately three hours after the crash.  He was identified as 27-year-old Marco Itehua-Sanchez of Eugene. 

This case remains under active investigation and alcohol use is being considered as a factor.  Additional information will be released as it becomes available.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Oregon State Police, Eugene Police Department, and Springfield Police Department for their assistance with this investigation.
