Child ejected in pickup crash dies
by Cheryl McDermott

An 11-year-old boy who was ejected from his mother’s pickup when it lost control, hit a snowbank and rolled on Timberline Road near the Mt. Hood Highway on Sunday died from his injuries Tuesday afternoon, Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers reported.

Shortly before 6 p.m., April 1, Ruthanne Adams, 48, also of Banks, was traveling downhill and south on Timberline Road (State Route 173) near milepost 3 in a 2001 Ford F150 crewcab pickup, troopers said.  As she was following a right-hand curve, the pickup lost control and hit a snowbank, rolling and coming to rest on its wheels blocking the southbound lane.

Adams’s 11-year-old son, Philip, had been riding unrestrained in the right front passenger street and was ejected during the accident.   He was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), where troopers reported he was in critical condition Monday, however he succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday afternoon.

Adams and her other son Alex Kollar, 13, were using safety restraints and received only minor injuries.  Alex was seated in the right rear seat of the crew cab.  Both were taken by American Medical Response (AMR) ground ambulance to OHSU.

Timberline Road was completely blocked for about one-half hour, troopers said, then Oregon Department of Transportation personnel reopened one lane of traffic.  The highway was cleared for all lanes of passage about midnight.

OSP troopers from Government Camp and Portland are continuing the investigation.  A crash investigation team from Clackamas County, Hoodland Fire Department, and AMR medical technicians assisted at the scene.
