PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A domestic dispute between 2 brothers in Estacada on Saturday night resulted in one brother being helicoptered to an area hospital with a “knife injury” and the other helicoptered to an area hospital after crashing from a possible DUII, Clackamas County Sheriff’s said.

There was no update on the condition of the two brothers, whose identities have not been released.

Deputies said they responded to a domestic abuse on Goat Mountain at approximately 8 p.m. The victim — one of the brothers — was driven from the incident to meet medical responders where he was helicoptered to an area hospital.

While that was happening, deputies said they were notified of a possible DUII crash. The driver turned out to be the other brother, whom deputies referred to as the suspect in the domestic incident. They found him injured. He, too, was helicoptered to an area hospital — separately from his brother.

This is an ongoing investigation.
