Oregon State Police Officer Injured After Being Hit by Impaired Driver

Thursday, February 25, 2016

 

Jordan Laddusaw, 24, of Kalama, Washington was taken into custody by the Curry County Sheriff's Officer for charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving, reckless endangering another person, and assault in the 3rd degree. 

This comes after Laddusaw crashed into an Oregon State Police car on highway 101, injuring officer Dean Trent. Trent was taken to Curry General Hospital where he was treated for a head injury and released. 

The Incident 

Officer Trent was assisting a disabled commercial vehicle on the highway and positioned his patrol car behind the truck with his emergency lights activated to divert traffic around the hazard. 

The trooper had been assisting the truck driver when he returned to his vehicle. The trooper was seated in his vehicle when he saw a vehicle approaching from behind at a high rate of speed. The approaching vehicle did not slow or move into the fast lane, rear ending the patrol vehicle. 

Both vehicle came to rest on the roadway after the crash. 

Alcohol and speed are considered the primary contributing to the crash. This is the second crash involving a marked OSP patrol car in a little over 24 hours.
