Sandy resident cited after crash in Boring that sent another Sandy resident to OHSU


Amanda L. Ferguson, 18, of Sandy was cited for failure to maintain a lane of travel after a near head-on collision Monday, Feb. 24, on Highway 212, just west of the Highway 26 Boring exit.

At approximately 7:25 a.m. Monday, Ferguson was driving her 2008 Toyota Scion eastbound on Highway 212 when she lost control of the car, according to police. The Scion crossed into the westbound lane, where it collided with a 2003 Toyota Corolla driven by Jeryl L. McGee, 64, of Sandy.

Oregon State Police, the Boring Fire District, Oregon Department of Transportation and AMR responded to the scene.

McGee was taken by AMR to Oregon Health & Science University for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Ferguson was not injured.

Both drivers were using seatbelts and vehicle airbags deployed.

The highway was blocked for about 30 minutes and then opened to one lane until the road was cleared at 8:40 a.m.
