Alcohol appeared to be a contributing factor in a Sunday afternoon crash that sent two people to the hospital, according to police.

The crash occurred in front of Roseburg High School at approximately 1:41 p.m. It totaled a Honda Civic and damaged a Ford Explorer.

Roseburg police said 27-year-old Alan Patrick Brock of Roseburg was driving west in a Honda Civic on West Harvard Avenue when he lost control and hit the Ford Explorer driven by 49-year-old Tony Mackey of Roseburg.

Both were transported to CHI Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg for non-life-threatening head and neck injuries, according to police.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

“The report indicates the driver of the Honda lost control and spun into oncoming traffic, striking the Ford Explorer,” said Sgt. Dennis Chrisenbery of the Roseburg Police Department.

The crash is still under investigation. Mackey was charged on suspicion of driving while uninsured.
