News Release
Fatal Traffic Collision - 05/20/20

At approximately 1241 hours on Wednesday, May 20th, 2020 the Roseburg Police and Fire Departments responded to a two vehicle collision on Highway 138 East at Pomona Drive.  It was reported that a Buick Century facing northbound on Pomona, pulled in front of a Chevrolet El Camino that was driving eastbound on Highway 138.  The El Camino struck the Buick on the driver side, causing the El Camino to spin and the Buick to careen into a nearby embankment by Les Schwab, on the south side of Highway 138 adjacent to Pomona.

The driver of the Buick, 76 year old Carol Mohr of Roseburg, was pronounced deceased at the scene.  Next of kin for Mohr have been contacted.  The driver of the El Camino, 86 year old Lowell Fisher of Roseburg, was transported to Mercy Hospital via ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  There were no other people involved in the collision.

The Oregon State Police are assisting the Roseburg Police Department with a reconstruction of the collision.  These reonstructions are common for vehicle collisions that result in a human fatality.  At this time there are no signs that impairment was a factor in this collision.  The highway in that area has been narrowed to one lane in each direction until the investigation is complete.

We appreciate the assistance of the Roseburg Fire Department, ODOT, Oregon State Police, and EMS with their assistance in this incident.
