Dayton woman killed in crash

 A Dayton woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 219 north of Newberg Tuesday evening. The Oregon State Police identified her as Erika Nicole Wanmer, 22.

OSP gave this account:

About 6:15, a Nissan Frontier, operated by Alexander Gabriel Lewis, 20, of Aurora,  was southbound when it moved into the northbound lane, to pass a tow truck hooking up a trailer on the southbound shoulder. Lewis collided with a northbound Kia operated by Wanmer. 

She was pronounced dead on scene.

A passenger in Wanmer's vehicle, Grehan William Dutton, 27, of Dayton, was transported by air ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.

Lewis was transported by ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital in Portland.

OSP was assisted by the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, Newberg-Dundee Police Department, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (Newberg) and an Oregon Department of Transportation crew



I remember seeing the trailer on the side of the road, and thought to myself, "I hope they get that moved soon", for this very reason. So very sad...
