On Thursday, October 3, 2019 at approximately 11:05 P.M. Oregon State Police Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a two vehicle crash on Hwy 99E and Waconda Rd NE.  

Preliminary investigation revealed that a silver 2007 Nissan Murano was traveling southbound on Hwy 99E when it veered from the southbound lane and struck a 2009 Kia Sportage, operated by Rodion E. Ovchinnikov (86) of Woodburn, that was stopped for a stop sign on Waconda Rd NE at Hwy 99E.
