Cinderblock hits car on I-5

Sunday at approximately 4:28 a.m., a 2012 Toyota Camry driven by Michael Becker, from Roy, Washington, was northbound on Interstate 5 in the right lane traveling under the E. Oregon Avenue overpass in Creswell when a cinder block fell from the overpass and came through the windshield. The block struck passenger Tiffany Becker in her face causing non-life threatening injury.

Becker was transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend for treatment. She was treated and released. The driver was not injured.

OSP troopers from the Springfield Area Command office responded to the scene and are continuing the investigation. Troopers received information that four unidentified persons, two on bicycles and two on skateboards, were in the area around the time of the incident but don't know if they are connected with the investigation.

Anyone with information to help identify the four subjects or who saw suspicious activity in the vicinity of the overpass at approximately 4:28 a.m. Sunday morning is asked to contact OSP Trooper Gerald Ellis at (541) 726-2536 or GEllis@osp.state.or.us.
