WASCO COUNTY, OR -- A Madras woman was killed in an icy 4-vehicle crash on Mount Hood, Friday evening.  41-year old Kimberly Meeker was eastbound on Highway 26 when investigators say she lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic.  Meeker's minivan was hit by two westbound cars.  A fourth vehicle was unable to avoid the crash.

 

Meeker died at the scene.  The two children with her were taken to the hospital, one with serious injuries.  One other driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Oregon state police investigators are still investigating, but say ice is likely the cause of the crash.
