On March 18, 2017, at approximately 8:22 PM, Oregon State Police troopers and emergency workers responded to a reported single vehicle crash occurred at milepost 59 on Interstate 5 southbound. As a result of the crash, one occupant died from his injuries. Preliminary investigation of the crash indicates a black 2000 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Kim Parsley ( age 62 from Glendale, Oregon) was traveling southbound when the Jetta was rear ended by a 2010 Subaru Legacy. The Subaru, driven by Lindsey Johnson (age 28 from Grants Pass), fled the scene. The crash caused the Volkswagen to flip onto its top and collide with a guardrail. Parsley was trapped in the vehicle and emergency workers had to extricate him from the vehicle with critical injuries. Parsley’s passenger, Ashlan Parsley (age 18 from Glendale, Oregon) was able to remove herself from the vehicle but sustained serious injuries. Both Parsleys were initially transported to Three Rivers Medical Center. Kim Parsley was later transported to Rogue Regional Medical Center where he died from his injuries. Approximately 20 minutes after the crash, one of the Oregon State troopers left the crash scene and stopped a vehicle, about a mile from the crash scene, for a lighting violations. The trooper stopped the Subaru and realized the vehicle had been involved in the crash. The driver was identified as Johnson and was ultimately arrested for DUII.
