EUGENE, Ore. -- An SUV was flipped on its side after a van driver ran a red light at the intersection of Highway 99 and Roosevelt Blvd. on Saturday night, Eugene Police said.
Emergency crews from Eugene Fire and Police responded to the crash just after 6:20 p.m. Saturday.
They arrived to find a 1996 Geo Tracker overturned by a van that had "failed to obey the traffic control device" at the intersection of Four Corners, where Roosevelt and Highway 99 meet.
The driver of the Geo, later identified as 65-year-old Gary Wayne Stimson of Eugene, was trapped inside the overturned vehicle. Stimson was extricated from the SUV before being taken to the hospital, where police said he received treatment for serious injuries.
Police arrested the driver of the van, Douglas Lee Price, 46 of Junction City, on charges of reckless driving, reckless endangering and assault III. He was lodged at the Lane County Jail.
The area directly around the crash was closed to traffic for around two hours after the crash while crews and investigators worked the scene.
