Douglas County, Oregon (OR) – On July 5, 2022, Oregon State Police Troopers and emergency workers reacted to a multi-vehicle, severe injury, blocking incident on Highway 38 at milepost 25 around 12:30 p.m.

According to initial tests, a tan Toyota Corolla driven by Cedric Lossing 24-year-old, of Myrtle Point was going east, trying to overtake an RV in the passing lanes when it exceeded the centerline. It collided head-on with Cathy Fore, 60-year-old, of North Bend.

A red Peterbilt dump truck driven by David Buoy, 60-year-old of Clatskanie was heading westbound and tried to leave the incident by moving into the eastbound lane, where it collided with an eastbound bumper-pulled Winnebago travel trailer driven by Timothy Prulheire, 70-year-old, of Grants Pass. The grey Ford F150 entered the westbound lane and crashed into a blue Kenworth dump truck driven by Dillan Bloomer, 27-year-old, of Clark Fork, Idaho, towing a flatbed utility trailer with a grader. Cedric Lossing was taken to Eugene’s RiverBend Hospital. Patrick Culbertson, 70-year-old, of Myrtle Point, and Cathy Fore, a companion in the Jeep, were sent to RiverBend Hospital in Eugene. Patrick Culbertson died as a result of his injuries and was declared dead at RiverBend. Dillon Bloomer and David Buoy were unharmed. Both Timothy Prulhiere, 81-year-old of Grants Pass, and his occupant, Joan Prulhiere, 81-year-old of Grants Pass, sustained minor injuries but rejected medical care at the location.
