WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Several people were hurt in a three-car crash near Forest Grove.

The crash happened just after 10 a.m. Saturday morning on Proper Road at Highway 47.

Washington County Deputies said a silver Mini Cooper Countrymen ran a stop sign at Southwest Porter Road and entered the westbound lane.

The car was hit by a Ford Escape, and then entered the eastbound lane where it was struck by a Ford Expedition, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s office.

Deputies said Corey Jenon Wade, 31, of Beaverton, was the driver of the Mini Cooper.

Fire crews had to extricate two people from a Mini Cooper including one of Wade’s passengers, a 34-year-old woman who suffered life threatening injuries and was life flighted to a hospital.

People in the other cars suffered minor injuries, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrested Wade after he was released from the hospital on a felony warrant for a probation violation.

Witnesses told deputies that he was illegally passing other cars and speeding before the crash.

Deputies are still investigating the crash and have not determined if any criminal charges will be filed.
