Motorhome Crash Traps 6 People Inside

VIDA, Ore. – Oregon State Police say a woman is facing multiple charges after her stalled motorhome rolled down an embankment on Highway 126 Sunday.

Around 7 p.m., OSP received a report of a possible DUII driver in a motorhome traveling eastbound along Highway 126 near Nimrod.

Troopers say as they were enroute to the area, the motorhome stalled on the highway. Five of the 11 occupants attempted to push the motorhome onto the side of the highway with Mary Louise Wragge, 45, of Eugene, steering.

The motorhome rolled off the highway, down an embankment and overturned, entrapping six occupants and several dogs inside.

Firefighters and medical personnel from McKenzie Fire & Rescue and Springfield Fire & Life Safety responded to the scene and worked to extricate those trapped inside.

Four people, including Wragge, were transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend for non-life threatening injuries.

OSP cited Wragge with several criminal and traffic offenses including DUII, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person, assault, driving with a suspended license and driving uninsured.

    Mary Louise is lucky no one was killed. Not only would she have been morally responsible, but her legal problems would have been far worse.
