An accident on early Sunday morning sent two people to the hospital with critical injuries.

According to the Molalla Fire Department, near the intersection of Maple Grove and Cooper Road, on Aug. 18., a pickup skidded off the road while rounding a corner.

Two men—Cody Ben Juran and Bryan William Laux, both 22—were thrown from the pickup’s bed.

One man hit the trees near the road. The second landed in the grass about 30 feet from where the vehicle came to rest.

Two Life Flight helicopters were on the scene. Juran was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center and Laux was taken to Oregon Health and Science University.

As of Tuesday, Aug. 20, both were in fair condition.
