Banks man cited in 4 injury crash on Oregon 47

Updated:

FOREST GROVE, Ore. (AP) - A Banks, Ore., man has been cited in a fiery crash on Oregon 47 near Forest Grove that injured three adults and one child on Saturday afternoon.

The Oregonian reports police cited the man for following too close. Oregon State Police say the man slammed on his brakes in his Jeep to avoid a rear-end collision, swerved into the opposite lane of traffic and crashed into an RV.

The Jeep then struck a tree and rolled, and the RV came to a stop on top of it. The Jeep's driver, 25-year-old Bryan K. Bartholomew, was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries.

Oregon State Police now say the family in the RV - two adults and one child from Gilbert, Ariz. - were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

A hospital spokeswoman told The Oregonian Bartholomew is recovering and has been upgraded to fair condition at Oregon Health & Science University.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
