Albany, Ore. – On Monday, June 13, 2022, at 1231 hours, Albany Police and Albany Fire Department Personnel responded to a motor vehicle crash occurring at SW Pacific Boulevard and Ellingson Road. A witness reporting the accident told Albany Police there were possible injuries, and one person was still in a vehicle.

 

There were only two people involved in the crash. The drivers were identified as 20-year-old Garret Roger Skelton of Dexter, Oregon, and 72-year-old Peggy Marie Redinger of Tangent. Redinger was pronounced deceased at the scene.

 

Skelton was operating a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup and was traveling north on Pacific Boulevard (Hwy 99) and struck the driver’s side of Redinger’s vehicle, who was operating a 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup traveling west on Ellingson Road, at the intersection with Pacific Boulevard (Hwy 99).

 

All but one south bound lane of Pacific Boulevard was closed for 2 hours while the Multi Agency Investigation Team (MAIT) investigated the crash. Currently, drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor and the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
