CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. -- Police are asking for help locating a driver that placed Illinois Valley Fire District workers in danger.

Saturday morning crews were dispatched to a single-vehicle car accident in Cave Junction. The accident happened near the 3600 block of Holland Loop Road. The wooden fence went through the Pontiac's window and barely missed the driver. Crews say the driver is "extremely lucky they were uninjured". The driver was even able to walk away from the accident to look for help. 

While fire district crews were working, the white sedan sped past them. Then workers say the driver stopped past their rescue vehicle and yelled obscenities. Police are asking for help identifying the driver because Chief Hoke at the Illinois Valley Fire Department says they do plan on pressing charges against the driver for placing their crews at risk of serious injury.
