TERREBONNE, OR -- Three people were hurt in a four-vehicle chain-reaction crash in Terrebonne, Tuesday afternoon, and investigators say it was caused by a driver distracted by his cell phone. 

 

According to the Sheriff’s Office, three cars were stopped on Lower Bridge Way at about 3:10 p.m., waiting for a school bus to drop off kids. A 46-year-old Eugene man driving a delivery van received a text and looked down at the phone attached to his dash. When he looked back up, he realized too late the cars in front of him were stopped. 
 
The van crashed into a Jeep Wrangler, which was pushed in to a Chevy Tahoe that then hit a Ford F150 pickup. A Crooked River Ranch couple in the Chevy and a 66-year-old Terrebonne man in the Jeep were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries; all three vehicles had to be towed. Don Caruso, the van driver, was cited for following too closely.
