Teen girl dies, boy injured in head-on crash

Two Oregon City residents identified in collision -

A teenage girl died and a young boy was critically injured in a head-on crash Friday afternoon in Clackamas County.

The girl who died has been identified as Madison Kealoha West, 18, of Oregon City. The name of the juvenile will not be released because of his age. He is still hospitalized in critical condition.

A 58-year-old man injured in the accident has been identified as Steven Mark Naylor of Oregon City.

According to the Clackamas County Sheriff's office, at approximately 6:08 p.m. on Feb. 20, CCSO deputies responded to the crash on South Redland Road near South Lyons Road.

Initial reports indicated two vehicles crashed head-on and there were multiple injuries.

One of the vehicles was a Saturn coupe driven by West. She was extracted from the vehicle and transported to an area hospital, where she later died of her injuries.

A 7-year-old boy in the second vehicle, a Hummer H3, was taken by Lifeflight to a hospital and listed critical condition. He was reportedly unrestrained in the vehicle.

The driver of the Hummer, identified as Naylor, was transported to a hospital and then released.

The Clackamas County Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Team (CRAFT) assisted with the crash investigation. Initial results show the Saturn veered into the oncoming lane.

A celebration of life for West will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28, at Oregon City Christian Church.
