Driver runs light, hits truck, flips car

Updated, 8:15 a.m.
A Klamath Falls man was in good condition in a Medford hospital this morning after his car collided with a pickup at the Medford intersection of two highways and the car rolled.

Garron Roudebush was cited for driving while under the influence of intoxicants and for running a red light at the "Big X" intersection of Highways 62, 99 and 238 across from Rogue Valley Mall just after 4 a.m., Medford police said in a news release.

He was in good condition at Providence Medford Medical Center this morning. The driver of the pickup, Evelio Viramontes of Phoenix, was in fair condition at the hospital.

Roudebush was driving his car east on Highway 238 when he failed to stop at the red light, police say. The car struck a northbound pickup driven by Viramontes, and the car flipped.

Police ask anyone with information about the wreck to call officer C. Bryant at 541-774-2250.
