AMITY — An Amity resident was injured about 5 p.m. Thursday in a single-vehicle crash south of Amity on Highway 99W at McKee Road.

Eric E. Calhoun, 22, of 1208 S. Jellison St. was transported by Life Flight helicopter to Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. A hospital spokesperson said today she could not comment on his condition.

Calhoun, driving a 2001 Hyundai Sonata, was southbound when he failed to negotiate a slight left turn, according to the Oregon State Police. The vehicle left the highway and struck a utility pole, bringing down power lines.

A Portland General Electric crew responded to repair damage to the pole. The highway was closed for several hours and traffic was detoured by an Oregon Department of Transportation crew at Yampo Road to the south of the crash site and at Nursery Avenue/Amity Road to the north.
