ROSEBURG, Ore. -- One person was transported to Mercy to be checked out, after the driver of a mini-van ended up on top of another car that was parked at Linus Oaks.
According to officials, a mini-van was traveling on a one-way street near the intersection of Linus Lane and Van Pelt Blvd.
Witnesses told KPIC News that for an unknown reason, the driver of the van went up a grass embankment, ending up on top of a car that was parked under a structure.
Robin Collins, a caregiver for the owner of the car that ended up at the bottom of the pile, said she was nearby when the wreck happened with the car's owner. "It was very loud, probably one of the loudest I've ever heard," Collins said. "And then, when Maxine walked up and saw it, she just broke down in tears."
The impact of the crash left the carport structure sitting on top of the van, which was on top of the car.
The driver of the mini-van was taken to the nearby Mercy emergency room to be checked out. No word yet on the extent of his injuries, but officials at the scene say they appeared to be non-life threatening.
The accident happened a little before 11:00 a.m. behind Mercy Medical Center.
Two tow trucks were used to clean up the accident, one to lift the carport and one to separate the vehicles.
