A man is in custody and a person has died after an early morning crash north of Keizer. On December 16th, at 4:19 a.m., deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office responded to a single vehicle roll over in the 7500 block of Windsor Island Road N.

From their investigation deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office CRASH Team believe that Justin Coakley, age 21, was driving his Ford truck north on Windsor Island Road when he lost control causing the vehicle to roll over. As a result of the crash Mr. Coakley and his passenger Alysia Frost, age 20, of Portland, were transported to the Salem Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Sadly, the second passenger in the vehicle, Karlie Thometz, age 18, of Salem was killed instantly.

After being released from the hospital Mr. Coakley was arrested by deputies and lodged at the Marion County Jail for the crimes of DUII, Manslaughter II, Reckless Endangering and Assault IV. With the holiday season fast approaching, this morning's incident is a tragic reminder to always drive sober. The Sheriff's Office asks that if you are going to celebrate, please celebrate responsibly and have a sober driver before hitting the roadway.

Fire Destroys home at 2347 Lynnwood Drive in Longview. (NO Photos)

FIRE DESTROYS HOME AT 2347 LYNNWOOD DRIVE IN LONGVIEW. (NO PHOTOS)


News Release from Longview Police & Fire
Posted on FlashAlert: December 16th, 2017 3:56 PM
Longview Fire and Cowlitz 2 Fire and Rescue responded to a large residential fire on East Lynnwood early Saturday morning.

Just after midnight, fire units arrived at 2347 East Lynnwood to find a large, 4000 square foot, two story home with heavy flames and smoke visible from a mile away. The house was over 50% fully involved with fire when Engine Companies began deploying hand lines.

Due to the heavy damage from fire burning on both floors, and through the roof, a defensive, exterior fire attack was ordered. Incident Command made contact with the homeowner almost immediately, and was informed that the family of 4 had escaped without injury. They were safe and warm in a neighbor's home as fire crews continued their efforts to extinguish the fire.

The home sits on a hillside, and the bottom floor was actually a fully finished daylight basement. The steep terrain on both sides of the home made firefighting efforts more challenging.

No adjacent homes were damaged. It appears that the burned-out home is a complete loss.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze and conduct overhaul and investigation duties in about 3 hours.

The homeowners were in the process of contacting their insurance agent to begin salvage and recovery efforts. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The displaced residents received amazing help and support from their neighbors, including help with boarding up broken and burned-out windows and doors.

4 Engines, 1 Ladder Truck, 1 Medic, and 2 Chief Officers from LFD and C2FR responded to this incident.
