A Eugene-area woman is facing multiple charges after a stalled motorhome she was operating Sunday evening rolled down an embankment as some of its occupants were trying to push it off Highway 12 6E east of Vida. The motorhome overturned onto its top injuring at least four people. Charges include DUII, Reckless Driving, Assault, and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.

On August 4, 2013 at approximately 7:00 p.m., OSP received a report of a possible DUII driver in an older model motorhome traveling along Highway 126E near Nimrod in Lane County. As an OSP trooper was enroute to the area, the motorhome occupied by 11 people stalled on the highway near milepost 34. Five of the 11 occupants attempted to push the motorhome backwards onto the side of the highway with MARY LOUISE WRAGGE, age 45, from Eugene, steering. The motorhome rolled off the highway, down an embankment and overturned entrapping six occupants and several dogs inside.

Firefighters and medical personnel from McKenzie Fire & Rescue and Springfield Fire & Life Safety responded to the scene where they worked for about 45 minutes to extricate those trapped inside. The motorhome's 11 occupants were assessed and treated at the scene. Four people, including WRAGGE, were transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend for non-life threatening injuries.

Subsequent to the initial investigation, OSP cited WRAGGE to appear at a later date in Lane County Circuit Court for several criminal and traffic offenses including:
