A Salem area man has died following a three vehicle car accident on Highway 97 near Sunriver last weekend. Herb Kroschel, 41, was traveling southbound on Highway 97 Saturday afternoon when a car in the northbound lane lost control and slid sideways in to the southbound lane and hit his car. His sport utility vehicle continued over a guardrail and down an embankment. Kroschel was taken to St. Charles with critical injuries. He died on Sunday. Eight others were also transported with non life threatening injures to St. Charles.
