A 61-year-old Oregon City man died Thursday afternoon in a single vehicle crash on U.S. 30 just outside of St. Helens.
Barry Robinson Jr. was one of four passengers riding in a silver Cadillac Escalade driven by Michael Scarlett of Oakland, Calif. Scarlett was driving eastbound on the highway when he apparently drove up an embankment before rolling “multiple times” and crashing onto the passenger side of his vehicle, according to state police. The crash occurred near milepost 39 on the highway adjacent to the Columbia River. Officials responded to the scene just after 2:15 p.m.

Coleman Ewell and Clayton Ewell, 28 and 25-years-old respectively, had minor injuries as a result off the crash. Those men
