On Wednesday, April 24th, 2024 at approximately 4:35 PM, Newport Police along with Newport Fire were dispatched to the intersection of Hwy 101 at Olive Street (Hwy 20) in Newport on the report of a two-vehicle traffic crash. The crash was reported as a two-vehicle crash with injuries and one vehicle being “flipped”. Responders arrived and discovered a black pickup with heavy front-end damage and a white pickup lying on its driver's side, both in the intersection.

Further investigation revealed the black truck, which was being operated by 29-year old Garrick Lindsted of Toledo, was traveling southbound on Hwy 101 and had failed to stop for the traffic signal. The white pickup was traveling westbound on Olive Street (Hwy 20) and was proceeding through the intersection when it was struck by Lindsted’s black truck.
