The driver of a northbound car was removed from the wreckage with pneumatic spreaders employed by Depoe Bay firefighters on Saturday after he tried to steer into a Highway 101 rest area at milepost 130 near Otter Crest but was struck by another northbound vehicle, instead. Oregon State Police Trooper Carla Urbigkeit reported that Joseph Sherlock III of Corvallis was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport, where he was cited for careless driving in the 1:30 p.m. incident. Also injured in the accident was Sherlock’s wife, who was transported to a hospital in Lincoln City.
