At roughly 5:30 a.m. Monday, a single-vehicle rollover near Ona Beach shut down Highway 101 for two hours as emergency responders worked to extricate the occupants. The vehicle had been traveling northbound when it struck a guardrail and flipped onto its side, pinning the driver’s arm between the road and doorway. Central Oregon Coast Fire & Rescue responded and was assisted by the Newport Fire Department, which brought heavy extrication equipment to free the driver. The driver was then transported to the Newport Municipal Airport to be taken out of county for treatment by Life Flight helicopter.
