Two Salem, Oregon Car Accidents Cause Traffic Blockage, Personal Injuries

Two car accidents in Salem, Oregon caused traffic problems for commuters on Friday.  One wreck occured on at Kuebler Boulevard and Liberty Street S at about 2 p.m.  It was a two-vehicle wreck involving a 2001 Chevrolet Silverade pickup and a 1995 Geo Prizm.

Both drivers claim they had a green light, creating a potential liability issue in any car accident insurance claim.  Oftentimes, factual disputes like this are resolved by witnesses to the car wreck or by police officers who conduct an investigation and determine who was at fault.  On some occasions the police issue citations to the at-fault driver.  In this Salem auto wreck, no citations were issued because no witnesses were immediately found.  There was no indication as to whether either of the drivers suffered personal injuries in the crash.

Another car crash in Salem, Oregon occured on Lancaster drive near the mall earlier in the day.  According to the Salem Statesmen Journal, a car crashed with a pickup in the southbound lanes.  Although there appear to have been pesonal injuries resulting from the wreck, no one was taken to the hospital by ambulance.  No indication of fault for the accident was immediately made known.
