Corvallis woman, passengers in other vehicle had minor injuries
HARRISBURG — A Shedd man died Monday night after a car crash at the intersection of Diamond Hill Drive and Powerline Drive, near Harrisburg.
Kenneth Kirkpatrick was 52.
Authorities believe that about 5:45 p.m., Kirkpatrick’s 1990 Geo Prism smashed into a 2008 Toyota Sienna that ran through a stop sign.
Three adult females and two toddlers were in the Sienna minivan, and they had minor injuries, said Sgt. Brad Kelley of the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.
The minivan was driven by 38-year-old Glenda Boundy of Corvallis.
Speed doesn’t appear to be a factor in the crash, nor do alcohol or drugs, Kelley said.
Kirkpatrick was wearing only a lap belt at the time of the crash. There were no airbags in his vehicle.
His car was westbound on Diamond Hill Drive. The minivan was headed north.
After emergency crews arrived, Kirkpatrick was transported via helicopter ambulance to Sacred Heart RiverBend Medical Center in Springfield.
The Linn County Multi-agency Accident Investigation Team — consisting of members of the sheriff’s office, Oregon State Police, and Albany, Lebanon and Sweet Home police — is investigating the case.
