Driver pulls out pair in accident

While Stephen Frame of Lake Oswego was driving to work eastbound down Interstate 84 in Northeast Portland Monday morning, he noticed something highly unusual: a car rolling down a hill.

“I thought how in the world did they get in that place?” the Lake Oswego resident said.

That was all of the pondering that Frame did, however, as he literally leaped into action as the car finally rolled to a stop on the Halsey exit. He jumped out of his car, leaped over a fence and went running over gravel to reach the two trapped people. He had to be careful because the car was partially blocking traffic.

Frame helped the brother and sister get out of the car safely and got them out of harm’s way.

“Amazingly, they were not hurt, even though they rolled down a hill so many times,” Frame said. “The sister had a little blood on her, and the brother seemed totally unharmed, although he was just in an accident and I’m sure he was in a foggy state of mind.”

The Portland Police Bureau’s public information office reported that, while the accident was fairly dramatic, there were no serious injuries. No cause was given for the mishap.
