  • About 500 people gathered in Ashland today to celebrate the life of Karen Greenstein, a 911 dispatcher in Southern Oregon for nearly 30 years who was killed by a wrong-way driver on March 27 while driving home from work on Interstate 5 near Phoenix.
    Police and emergency services personnel from across Jackson County were clad in full uniform for the memorial service inside the Ashland High School gymnasium.
    Greenstein, 58, of Ashland, driving a Honda Civic, was hit head-on shortly after 3 a.m. by a Dodge Caravan driven by Richard Webster Scott, 42, of Grants Pass.
    Oregon State Police said they believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. OSP has launched a criminal investigation.
    Scott is listed in fair condition at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, a hospital spokesperson said.
