Crash into wind turbine sends woman to hospital

HELIX – A woman crashed her car at the bottom of a wind turbine outside Helix, and an emergency helicopter rushed her to a hospital. But plenty of questions remain about the crash and the victim.

The Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office activity log shows a female at 7:32 a.m. Monday reported she crashed sometime during the night at the bottom of a turbine near Stockman Road and Cory Crossing, Helix. She called the sheriff’s office in Walla Walla County, Washington, and dispatchers relayed information to Umatilla County. An ambulance crew from the Pendleton Fire Department responded, but fire Capt. Dave Baty said a helicopter ambulance from Life Flight took the woman. He said the department had no more information.

The crash location would likely fall under the jurisdiction of the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office, which has a deputy trained in crash reconstruction. Sheriff Terry Rowan said he had been out of town, and undersheriff Jim Littlefield did not return a call Tuesday.
