Date: 11/29/2019

On 11/29/2019 at 12:35pm, Milwaukie Police responded to a two vehicle crash on SE Railroad Avenue just east of SE Beckman Avenue. When police arrived on scene, they found a black Chrysler 200 facing west on its side, in the ditch, along the railroad tracks. The second vehicle, a silver Ford Focus, was also facing west blocking both lanes of travel.

The driver of the Chrysler, 29-year-old Reade Finucane and his 22-month-old son Brayden, who was in a child seat in back, were assisted out of the car by Police and Clackamas County Fire Fighters to be tended to by medics.

The cause of Mr. Finucane’s maneuver into the east bound lane could not be determined during the investigation.

Mr. Finucane and his son Brayden were transported to a local hospital for evaluation. Mr. Finucane for possible minor head trauma/concussion and his son Brayden went for evaluation due to his age.
