OCEAN PARK — A woman suffered serious injuries after hitting a utility pole at a high rate of speed Wednesday afternoon along Sandridge Road east of Ocean Park. The victim, whose name and age weren’t immediately available, was transported by air ambulance to a Portland-area hospital for treatment of “traumatic injuries,” according to Pacific County Fire District No. 1 Chief Jacob Brundage.

“We were dispatched to a single-car accident at 238th and Sandridge after a car hit a power pole at a high rate of speed,” Brundage said. The accident knocked on the power for parts of the Peninsula, including Ocean Beach Hospital (OBH). Due to some uncertainly whether the hospital equipment would be working, the air evacuation was ordered, Brundage said.

“We decided the patient needed to go to a trauma center and the call was made to Life Flight,” Brundage said.
