SISTERS, OR -- A Bend woman was killed in a head-on collision that tied up traffic for several hours between Sisters and bend, Wednesday morning. Oregon State Police investigators say 74-year-old Karen Langeliers was westbound on Highway 20 when she lost control on the icy roadway, just before 10 a.m.
Her car crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a Ford F-350 pickup, driven by a 71-year-old Molalla man. Langeliers was pronounced dead at the scene; the other driver was not hurt.
The investigation is ongoing, but preliminary information indicates icy conditions contributed
to the cause of the crash. Highway 20 was closed for about two hours and had one lane closed for another hour after that while officers reconstructed the scene.
