Bomb squad called to site of semi crash

In Redmond, Oregon, a head on crash involving a semi and pickup truck quickly escalated into a much scarier scene, after suspicious looking packages were found inside one of the vehicles. In addition, the crash happened Wednesday afternoon on Highway 97 when the driver of the pickup crossed the centerline, and hit the semi head-on. The driver of the semi was 44-year-old, Gabriel Perez who was uninjured in the crash.

27-year-old, Troy Schaffner was driving the pickup truck, and was injured, yet in good condition following his departure to the hospital. Shortly after the accident the OSP bomb squad was called in to remove the suspicious packages that resembled improvised explosive devices found in the pickup truck. Eventually the unknown items were successfully secured, and the scene was cleared. Thus far, there has been no report of what the suspicious items actually contained.
