The driver of a sport utility vehicle involved in a head-on crash Sunday evening on Highway 6 near Banks reportedly died Monday morning from her injuries. Four others were injured in the crash that resulted in the highway being closed about five hours.
On September 16, 2007 at approximately 7:15 p.m. a silver 2002 GMC Yukon driven by Stacie Ann Boyer, age 39, from Canby, was eastbound on Highway 6 near milepost 51 when it veered into the westbound lane where a red 2000 Ford F150 pickup driven by Aubrey Ray Hunter, age 37, from Forest Grove, tried to avoid a head-on collision. The GMC veered back toward the eastbound lane and collided nearly head-on with the Ford pickup. The vehicles came to rest blocking the highway.
Stacie Boyer was critically injured and transported by LifeFlight to Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU). She reported died Monday morning from her sustained injuries.
The GMC had three passengers who were injured and transported by Metro West ambulance. Nick Boyer, age 16, was seriously injured and transported to OHSU. McKinzie Boyer, age 14, received non-life threatening injuries and was believed to be transported to St. Vincent's Hospital. Katelyn Marks, age 15, received non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Legacy Emanuel Hospital.
Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers from the Banks work site are continuing the investigation with the assistance of an OSP collision re-constructionist. Washington County Sheriff's Office, Banks Fire Department, and ODOT assisted at the scene.
