Two vehicle crash closes Plymouth


A two-vehicle accident briefly shut down Plymouth Drive NE in Keizer around 1:30 p.m. Monday.

The accident happened directly in front of the entrance to the Keizer/Salem Senior Center and involved a green early 1990s Honda Accord coupe and a late-model silver Mazda 6.

“The green car was eastbound,” officer Dan Kelley said on the scene. “The silver car was westbound and turned in front of the Honda.”

The two vehicles hit right front-to-right front, with the vehicles ending up side-by-side, slightly facing to the west.

Kelley said the Mazda was driven by an elderly male, who appeared to be OK and was tended to on site by medics. The driver of the Honda, a male in his 20s, was transported to the Salem Hospital. Kelley did not have an update on his status.

Kelley said citations could be issued later.
