Collision hurts Eugene man.
A Eugene man received minor injuries Sunday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 5 that closed part of Belt Line Road for about 20 minutes.
Jeff Caston was southbound on the freeway when a Buick changing lanes clipped the rear of his Ford Bronco, which went into an uncontrollable skid and rolled over, according to Oregon State Police.
The driver of the Buick, Edward Staub of Alturus, Calif., was not injured and was not cited. State police did, however, cite Caston for failure to perform the duties of a driver, driving with a suspended license and driving uninsured.
A passenger in Caston's vehicle apparently fled the scene, Trooper Vonn Schleicher said.
Caston was treated at McKenzie Willamette Hospital in Springfield and released.
The accident occurred about 2 p.m. just south of the Belt Line overpass. Police closed Belt Line at Coburg Road to keep traffic off the eastbound off-ramp to I-5 and away from the accident scene.
An Oregon State Police officer and a Springfield Police officer investigate the scene of a two-car collision Sunday afternoon at the on-ramp from Belt Line Road to the southbound lane of Interstate 5.
