A two-vehicle, rear-end crash in Newport early Friday afternoon resulted in injuries. A southbound Ford F-150 pickup, driven by Robert Leith, 55, of Newport, had stopped for a pedestrian crossing Highway 101 near the intersection of NW Third St. Rebecca Adkinson, 24, of Yachats was driving a 2003 Suzuki four-door sedan, also headed south, and failed to see the stopped vehicle. She struck the pickup while traveling at about 30 miles per hour. A passenger in the pickup, Regina Kovire, 57, of Newport, is pictured being assisted by members of the Newport Fire Department. Adkinson was cited by police for following too close.
