SISTERS, OR -- Two people were killed in a crash on Santiam Pass, Thursday afternoon. Emergency crews responded to Highway 20, just east of the Santiam Summit, at about 1:15 p.m. 

 

State Police Investigators say it appears an eastbound Ford van crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a Subaru head-on. Both drivers died at the scene; their identities have not been released. There was no one else in either vehicle. 
 
The incident closed Highway 20 for more than an hour before one lane opened for alternating traffic. It was about three hours before the highway fully reopened.
