Officials say alcohol was involved in Sunday morning crash
A 29-year-old Oregon City woman was killed early Sunday morning after her vehicle ran a red light on Beavercreek Road and was struck broadside by a pickup driven by an Oregon City man.
The woman, Jennifer Miller, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Oregon State Police troopers. They added that the pickup's driver, Robert Asher, 58, was not injured and fully cooperated with the investigation.
A male passenger in Miller's vehicle, whose name was not released, was taken by ambulance to OHSU for treatment of serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
Officials said all three were wearing seat belts and that alcohol was believed to be a factor in the accident.
Investigators said Miller's vehicle was heading eastbound on Beavercreek at about 1:55 a.m. Sunday morning when it went through a red light and was hit broadside by Asher's vehicle, which was southbound on Highway 213 and had a green light.
The Oregon State Police were assisted by officials from the Oregon City Police Department, Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue, AMR ambulance, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and ODOT.
