Two killed in accident near Sea Lion Caves
FLORENCE - Two people died Saturday in a traffic crash on Highway 101 north of the Sea Lion Caves, Oregon State Police said.
The crash occurred when a car was struck broadside by another vehicle attempting to pass a group of traffic about eight miles north of the Sea Lion Caves, said police Lt. Gregg Hastings.
At about 4:50 p.m., Salina M. Taylor-Caldwell, 20, of Reno, Nev., was heading north behind a group of about five other vehicles when she began to pass the other traffic.
As her Ford Excursion was nearing the front of the group of traffic, the lead vehicle, a 2001 Oldsmobile, began to turn left across the southbound lane toward the entrance to Bob Creek Wayside.
The Excursion crashed into the driver's side of the Oldsmobile.
Both vehicles came to rest several feet north of the crash scene, blocking the highway, Hastings said.
The driver of the Oldsmobile, Trina Leann Eyler, 23, of Bremerton, Wash., was declared dead at the scene.
A passenger in the Oldsmobile, Scott Jacob Carlson, 24, of Poulsbo, Wash, also died from injuries in the crash. Both he and Eyler were wearing seat belts, Hastings said.
Taylor-Caldwell was wearing a seat belt and her SUV's airbag deployed. She received minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to Pacific Community Hospital in Newport.
The highway was closed about four hours as troopers investigated the accident scene.
