Five hospitalized and released after Saturday Woodland-area car crash

  • 1

All five individuals involved in a Woodland-area three-car collision Saturday afternoon were taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, according to a PeaceHealth spokesman.

A Washington State Patrol report states that the accident, which occurred at 3:48 p.m., happened when a vehicle traveling southbound on State Route 503 driven by Roger Opp, 61, of Spokane, allegedly rammed into the back of another vehicle, driven by Logan Schoonover, 18, of Woodland. Schoonover was stopped on the highway, waiting to turn left onto Little Kalama River Road.

According to the WSP report, Schoonover’s car then crossed into northbound lanes, where it was struck by a third vehicle traveling northbound, driven by Richard Moore, 70, of Tualatin, Ore. This caused Moore’s car to roll into a ditch.

Schoonover, Moore, Opp and the two passengers in Opp’s vehicle, Sandra Opp, 56, and Corey Opp, 38, both of Spokane, were all wearing seatbelts, according to the WSP report.

PeaceHealth spokesman Randy Querin said all five people involved in the accident were released from PeaceHealth Vancouver on either Saturday or Sunday.

He declined to give further details on their injuries.

State Route 503 was temporarily blocked after the crash Saturday.

A spokeswoman for WSP said she did not know how long the highway was blocked.

The WSP report states that charges are “pending” for Opp regarding the accident.
