News Release
Deputies Investigating Monday Evening Traffic Fatality (Photo) - 10/05/22

On Monday, October 3, 2022, at approximately 7:15 p.m., deputies and emergency personnel were dispatched to a serious motor vehicle crash on Golf Club Road SE near Mill Creek Road SE, just outside the city of Stayton. Deputies arrived on scene to discover two vehicles were involved in the head-on crash.

The Marion County multi-agency CRASH team was called out to investigate the crash. Initial information at the scene indicates a red Kia Rio was traveling north on Golf Club Road before crossing over the centerline while negotiating a curve, striking an oncoming black Kia Optima. Investigators do not believe speed or alcohol were contributing factors to the crash.

Bridget Turner (57) of Stayton was identified as the driver of the red Kia Rio. She was transported from the scene by Life Flight to an area hospital where she died from injuries sustained in the crash. The 21 year-old male driving the black Kia Optima sustained minor injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Keizer Police Department, Life Flight, Marion County Public Works, METCOM 911, Oregon State Police, Stayton Fire District, Stayton Police Department, and Willamette Valley Communications Center during this response.
