  • Oct 2, 2008 at 10:23AM

Student Dane Dahline holds up a chicken egg that survived a 95-foot fall covered in bubble wrap at Opstad Elementary School recently. Dahline, with the help of his father Chris, helped to organize the "Egg Drop" event to raise money for the new Hopelink Center in North Bend. More than 80 student-designed egg cases were dropped by students from an extended ladder atop a fire engine. Members of Eastside Fire and Rescue, including volunteer firefighter John Lang [pictured], donated their time and the fire engine for the event. The materials the students used for their egg case designs varied from boxes with foam, bubble wrap and duct tape to containers made with angel food cake, filled with petroleum jelly or stuffed with popped popcorn. Opstad Elementary principal John Jester [pictured in the background on the fire engine] said the event was intended to "reinforce teaching and learning about science while helping to raise money for a local charity."

Colello of North Bend, and passenger, 28-year-old Corrie D. Harley. Washington State Patrol said neither was wearing a seat belt; Colello was ejected from the 2000 Acura Integra upon crash impact. Officials said the accident could have occurred up to 10 hours prior to being reported at 7:49 a.m. as the bodies and the vehicle were almost completely obscured by undergrowth and trees. According to the State Patrol, the car hit the right guardrail and then crossed the freeway to go through the left guardrail, heading down the embankment toward the westbound lanes. There were no obvious signs of alcohol involvement but police are awaiting results of toxicology reports. There are no known witnesses at this time and the case is still under investigation.
