Info: Marion County Deputies were called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident early Saturday morning on April 14th around 1:15am in the 6500 block of 22nd Ave. They found a 1999 Honda crashed into the front of a home. The homeowner reported hearing a car approaching on Niagra, near 22nd Ave. The car failed to negotiate the curve in the road and crashed through a fence, then traveled 200 feet across a large field, sideswiped a tree, then hit the corner of the residence before impacting the front porch and coming to a rest. The homeowner ran to assist but was unable to get the occupants out of the car. Damage to both the vehicle and house was significant.

All three were then transported to Salem Hospital where they were treated for their injuries. The front seat air bags were deployed but none of the occupants were wearing seatbelts.
