— Edward Edmo, 74, was headed east on the freeway northwest of Huntington at about 3:30 Monday afternoon when he lost control of his 2007 Dodge pickup towing a 24-foot travel trailer while going through a curve.

The pickup struck the center concrete divider at Milepost 332 and rolled. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels, but the pickup and trailer blocked both eastbound lanes.

Edmo was taken by helicopter to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Edmo's wife, Maree Edmo, 62, was taken by ambulance to St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Ontario for treatment of injuries that were not life threatening, according to the Oregon State Police.

Edward Edmo was listed this evening in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Maree Edmo was treated and released, a spokeswoman at the Ontario hospital said.
