By Joe Simons
Three were injured Friday evening when a DUII driver traveling the wrong way down I-84 caused a head-on crash.
78-year-old Leonard Gilbert was driving east in the westbound lanes at about 8:30 p.m. between Mosier and Hood River. Gilbert clipped the corner of a Ford Escape with his 4 door pickup, and then crashed head on with a Toyota Camry.
Oregon State Police say the passengers in the Camry, 21 year-old's Chelsea Ziegler and Samuel Lowe were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Gilbert suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was cited at the hospital for numerous infractions including DUII and reckless driving.
