On August 5, 2014, 25-year-old Kelsey Zionskowski got off of a TriMet bus onto SE McLoughlin Boulevard near SE River Rd. She was on her way home from work at Oregon Health Sciences University, where she is working as a Clinical Student Worker.
Kelsey walked to a crosswalk and was standing waiting to cross McLoughlin. She was struck by a southbound car when it left its lane of travel. Kelsey was seriously injured, with massive trauma to both legs. After being transported by AMR to OHSU, she lost her left leg. Her right leg was severely injured as well. She also suffered other injuries in the crash and will never fully recover. Several surgeries are still in her future. Continue reading Accident Victim Kelsey Zionskowski→

A fundraising event sponsored by the Clackamas County Peace Officers’ Benevolent Foundation was held for Officer Nathan Seitz on May 16, 2014. The fundraiser was filled with laughs and heartfelt wishes from Nate’s co-workers, family, friends, church members and community leaders who joined together to support Nate and his wife.
Eleven days later, Nate underwent a very successful kidney transplant from which he is continuing to recover. Most recently, Nate has been medically released to begin an exercise program to work toward regaining his strength and stamina.
Thank you to the Clackamas County Peace Officers’ Benevolent Foundation, the community businesses partners and all of the individuals who made a big difference to Nate and his wife during a critical life event.
