Two motorists killed in Highway 20 crash
Two motorists lost their lives on Thursday, November 2, in a head-on crash on Highway 20 near the Santiam Pass summit.
Oregon State Police reported that at approximately 1:15 p.m., OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a two-vehicle crash on Highway 20 near milepost 81, just east of the summit.
Investigation revealed a 2003 Ford van towing a trailer traveling eastbound on Highway 20 crossed the double centerline and struck a westbound 2010 Subaru Legacy head-on. The driver of the Subaru, Linda A. Davis, age 70, of Stayton, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Ford, a 47-year-old male, was also pronounced dead. His identity is still being withheld at this time, as his family has not yet been located.
Highway 20 was completely closed for about one hour until one alternating lane was opened for traffic.
