Portland, OR (February 21, 2023) – At 11:52 p.m. on February 17, the Portland Police Bureau was requested at the scene of an automobile accident that left several people injured.
Reports from PPB show that two vehicles collided on North Marine Drive during the evening hours. Both of the vehicles then caught on fire as a result of the crash.
Authorities arrived at the scene and immediately went to work battling the blaze.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured in the crash. The two victims were taken to local hospitals in order to receive care for their injuries, which were considered to be life-threatening.

Car Accidents in Oregon
Car accidents frequently occur in Oregon that have devastating consequences on the lives of those involved. This is particularly true in accidents involving drivers who are speeding. Not only does speeding increase the likelihood of a driver losing control of their vehicle, but it also increases the severity of injuries that victims suffer in crashes. We see many people left with severe spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even trauma to the head as a result of these accidents.
After suffering injuries as a result of a car crash, you can seek financial compensation for some of the damages that you face. Following your crash, you have the right to seek compensation to compensate any and all of the lost wages you have incurred due to having to take time off work to recover from the injuries you have sustained.
You also have the right to request financial compensation to cover the costs of your medical treatment. This can cover the expense of emergency medical treatment, such as any surgeries and hospital stays, as well as the cost of long-term treatment, such as rehabilitation and therapy.
Additionally, you can request compensation to repair or replace your vehicle. It is crucial that you are able to go back on the road as soon as possible after being involved in an accident.
