Traffic Blocked on EB Beltline at NW Expressway
Case No. 14-15770

At 7:50 this morning, Eugene Police were dispatched to a multiple-vehicle crash, blocking eastbound Beltline near Northwest Expressway.

According to witnesses, a silver 1992 Dodge Spirit driven by Eric Shawn Johnson, age 46 of Eugene, was travelling eastbound as traffic was coming to a slow crawl in rush-hour traffic. Johnson’s vehicle didn’t appear to slow significantly as he approached the slowing traffic and he struck a silver 2008 Kia Spectra driven by Allen J. Quinn, 49, of Springfield. Quinn’s vehicle hit the vehicle in front of it, a 1999 Subaru Outback driven by Logan Rose Knauss, age 24, of Eugene.

Two individuals driving home from work as paramedics were near the crash and responded to assist Quinn until medics arrived to transport him to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The other involved drivers were not transported.

Johnson was issued citation for Careless Driving.

The highway was reopened to traffic at 9:01 a.m. ###
