STANFIELD — A two-vehicle crash Thursday morning near Stanfield sent two teens to the hospital.

The Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office in a written statement reported the crash occurred before 7:50 a.m. at the intersection of South Edwards and Feedville roads when a red 2001 Oldsmobile Alero traveling south on South Edwards crashed with a silver 1993 Chevrolet pickup going west on Feedville. The Umatilla County Fire District and sheriff’s deputies responded.

A 19-year-old woman drove the Oldsmobile, and a 16-year-old male drove the Chevrolet, according to the sheriff’s office, which has not released names of the drivers. Emergency workers freed the 19-year-old from the wreck. The sheriff’s office also reported the drivers were the only occupants and both suffered injuries.

Ground ambulances took each driver to Good Shepherd Medical Center, Hermiston. Weather prevented an air ambulance from flying to the crash.

Deputies did not give any citations, and the sheriff’s office reported the crash remains under investigation.
