Just after 10:15 p.m., on July 8, 2017, Troopers from the Central Point Area Command of the Oregon State Police responded to a semi-tractor trailer versus vehicle crash on the northbound I-5 lanes at the milepost 24 interchange, within the city limits of Medford.

The initial investigation revealed a 2002 GMC truck operated by 81 year old Medford local Ellis Feinstein, entered the I-5 northbound lanes, traveling in the wrong direction (southbound) from the Exit 24 Interchange northbound off-ramp. The GMC truck traveled several hundred feet before colliding head-on in the A-lane with a 2016 Freightliner Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) operated by 49 year old British Columbia resident, Harminder Singh Nijjar. Feinstein, who was the sole occupant of the GMC truck, died as a result of his injuries sustained in the crash. Nijjar, who was also alone in his CMV, did not sustain any injuries.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Oregon Department of Transportation, Phoenix Police Department, Medford Police Department, Talent Police Department, Jackson County S.O. as well as Ashland Fire and Rescue and Fire District 5.
