Four people were hospitalized after a serious car crash near Redland in Clackamas County on Sunday night.
The most seriously injured, a 5-year-old boy, was taken by a LifeFlight helicopter. He suffered "severe facial injuries," but is expected to survive.
Clackamas County sheriff's deputies said 72-year-old Normal Dallas lost control of a pickup truck and hit a car with a mother and her two kids inside.
They said alcohol may have contributed to Dallas losing control.
A neighbor told FOX 12 she was in her yard when she heard a loud noise about 8:15 p.m. near South Fischers Mill Road and South Princess Court.
Deputies said Dallas was headed westbound on Fischers Mill when he hit the sedan as it traveled in the other direction. They said Dallas was the only person in the truck.
Neighbors called 911 and ran to the scene to help.
"I was just yelling that help is on the way, the neighbors were trying to make sure the cars weren't catching on fire," said neighbor Amy Bennett. "Lifeflight came and landed in the field and took a boy to the hospital and I hope everyone's OK. It's tragic, I mean it's Father's Day and people need to slow down."
The Clackamas County sheriff's office reconstruction and forensic team was called in to investigate because of serious injuries.
Dallas now faces charges of driving under the influence, assault, criminal mischief, recklessly endangering and reckless driving.
