GOVERNMENT CAMP, OR -- Sunday was a deadly day on Central Oregon highways. A Bend man was killed in a head-on crash near Chemult, just before 2 a.m. (pictured). State Police say 64-year-old Roy Smith was southbound on Highway 97 when he lost control on the icy road and hit a northbound semi. Smith was pronounced dead following life-saving efforts at the scene. The Washington truck driver and her passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries.  


Sunday evening, Highway 26 was closed for several hours, following a fatal crash, east of Government Camp. State Police believe the driver of a westbound Ford Excursion lost control on the snow-covered highway and hit an eastbound Subaru. The passenger in the Subaru died at the scene. That investigation is ongoing.
