SISTERS, OR -- A Salem man was killed in a crash on Highway 126, near Belknap Hot Springs, Monday afternoon. Oregon State Police say an eastbound vehicle crossed the centerline into the path of a pickup towing a travel trailer. 

 

The car moved back into its own lane, but the pickup lost control while trying to avoid a collision. It hit an embankment and several trees before rolling over. The 64-year-old pickup driver, Kermit Lisle Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene. 

 

The other driver, an Idaho man, continued eastbound but was located a short time later and is cooperating with the investigation.
