On March 23, 2012 at approximately 8:15 AM deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to a head-on traffic collision that occurred in front of 21611 SE Foster Rd. in the city of Damascus, Oregon.

When deputies arrived they discovered the driver of one vehicle was deceased and the other driver had injuries. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

At the time of the collision, weather conditions were clear but there were reports of black ice on the roadway. The roadway conditions may have been a factor in this crash. The Deputies were assisted by the Boring Fire Department and AMR.
