Man killed, family injured in Santiam Summit crash Injured ironworker who fell from ladder files lawsuit PORTLAND — An ironworker injured when he fell from a ladder at a southern Oregon dam has sued PacifiCorp and several contractors, seeking more than $25 million. The Oregonian reports that the lawsuit says Joshua J. Lang suffered a broken back and other injuries on May 18, 2012, when he was working at the Soda Springs Dam. His lawyer says he fell an estimated 25 feet and now uses a wheelchair, although he can “hobble” for short distances. The suit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court says the dam was operated by PacifiCorp. The suit alleges the ladder lacked nonslip rungs and was placed at too steep an angle. The suit also contends that employ- PORTLAND — Oregon State Police say two men have been cited in an investigation of illegal crabbing off Cape Falcon along the north coast of Oregon. In a statement Monday, the police said the investigation began in December and led investigators to recover more than 150 crab pots this month, many with rotting crabs or crab parts. The police identified the owner of the fishing vessel Valkyrie as 34-year-old Aron Steinbach of Bay City and said he was accused of several violations, including not having tags for buoys and pots, setting crab pots for more than 14 days without taking them in, and wasting the crab. Police say a man who had once been captain of the Valkyrie, 30-year-old Thomas White of Nehalem, was cited for not having a commercial fishing license. — The Associated Press Fix is years away for crash-prone Eugene stretch EUGENE (AP) — Oregon state traffic planners are working on long-term plans to speed traffic along the 50year-old Randy Pape Beltline in north Eugene, but it’s a job that might be a quarter of a billion dollars and at least a decade away. The highway wasn’t designed to handle the 90,000 vehicles in a typical day that now drive over spans crossing the Willamette River between River Road and the Delta Highway, the Eugene Register-Guard reports. The stretch has closely spaced interchanges and short ramps that were suitable when the freeway ran through mostly rural territory, but urban development now surrounds it, making for stop-and-go traffic and a place on the state’s list of roads most prone to collisions. It averages 60 crashes a year, most of them rear-enders resulting from sudden stops or merging. Five have been fatal. “It’s kind of become more of a bumper-car alley than anything,” said Deb Elder, who tries to avoid the highway between 3 and 7 p.m. The state Department of Transportation has some short-term steps in mind, such as extending some onramps. It will present a draft plan for the long-term improvement of the segment at an open house today. Among its features: options for a new river bridge, roads parallel to the Beltline for merging and exiting traffic, and more interchange adjustments. OBITUARIES Donna N.
