LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine woman was seriously injured in a crash Thursday night in Northern Klamath County. The head-on crash occurred after Oregon State police received a report of a pickup driving erratically in the southbound shoulder.

 

Troopers were trying to catch up to the vehicle speeding at close to 100 mph when it crashed into a northbound car, just before 10 p.m. The driver of the pick-up, a 72-year-old Florida man, was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
OSP says 30-year-old Chamreun Newton was driving the northbound car. She was flown to St. Charles Bend where she was listed in critical condition, as of Friday morning.
 
Highway 97 was closed in both directions for more than five hours during the investigation.
