OBRIEN, Ore. -- The Illinois Valley Fire District is updating their statement on a crash that happened last night in O'Brien.
On their Facebook page the Public Information Officer, Ned Booth, says "Here is my clarification from my previous post. As we so often see when a car accidently leaves the roadway it accidently hits a tree. Last night was the same. The driver did not purposely intend to leave the roadway or to hit the tree. When the car accidently left the roadway the tree by no intent of its own happened to get in the way. Please accept my apologies for any misconception I may have conveyed."
The post originally stated at 9:53 p.m. on April 4, fire crews responded to a crash on the 800 block of Lone Mountain Road in O'Brien.
They said "a car with only the driver tried to knock down a tree."
The driver was taken to Three Rivers Medical Center, the driver's condition is unknown.
Fire crews say "the tree stayed at the scene."
