News Release
Fatal Crash Interstate 5 -- Marion County - 08/16/22

On Monday August 15, 2022, at about 2:40 PM, Oregon State Police (OSP) Troopers and emergency personnel responded to a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 SB near milepost 277. 

Preliminary investigation revealed that a Honda Civic, operated by Jacob Hernandez-Arellano, age (18), of Salem, was driving southbound and made a lane change from the left lane to the middle lane into the path of a 2015 Freightliner semi-truck with trailer, operated by Jasvir Singh, age (52), of Yuba City, California. The vehicles crashed and came to rest a short distance away in the right lane and shoulder. 

Hernandez-Arellano was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency personnel.  A juvenile passenger in the Honda Civic received non-life threatening injuries and was transported to the Salem Memorial Hospital.  Singh was not injured.

Southbound Interstate 5 was closed for about 2 ½ hours. 

OSP was assisted by Life Flight, Aurora Fire, Metro West Ambulance, Falck Ambulance, TVFR, Woodburn Fire, and ODOT.
