CHEMULT, OR -- One person was killed and two others injured in a crash that shut down Highway 97 just south of La Pine for more than three hours, Sunday night. Oregon State Police investigators say a Honda Civic was northbound when it lost control on the icy roadway at about 8 p.m. It crossed over the center line and collided with another car.
The driver of the Civic, a 49-year-old California man, was pronounced dead at the scene. The two Klamath Falls men in the other vehicle were taken to a Klamath Falls hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
OSP is looking for witnesses to the crash and ask anyone with information to call Senior Trooper Creed Cummings at 503-583-5073.
