One Injured in N. Foothill Rd. Crash (Photo)

MEDFORD - North Foothill Road was closed for one hour today while deputies investigated a two-vehicle crash at the intersection with Coker Butte Road. The crash was first reported to dispatch at 10:59 am.

The involved vehicles were a dark blue 1998 Ford Ranger pickup driven by Ricky Wayne Fielder, Jr., 48, of Central Point, and a white 2003 Ford Econoline van driven by Michael Joseph O'Shea, 46, of White City. Deputies determined Fielder was driving northbound on N. Foothill Road and turned left in front of the southbound van, causing a head-on crash at the intersection.

Fielder was transported to Rogue Regional Medical Center for treatment for a broken leg. O'Shea was not injured. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and were towed from the scene. Fielder was cited for careless driving.
