Late Sunday night, Rural Metro Fire District, American Medical Response and Oregon State Police responded to a rollover crash on Russell Road in Hugo.

When EMS services arrived, they found two people pinned inside a pickup truck.

The truck had rolled over into a yard, narrowly missing hitting a house and coming to a stop next to another vehicle. During the crash, the rolled over vehicle took out a power pole, "knocking lines into the roadway," according to RMFD.

Crews on scene removed the two people from the pickup and brought them to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

Oregon State Police is continuing to investigate the crash.
