MADRAS, OR -- A Madras man and a child were killed in a three-car crash near Madras, Monday night. One driver, 36-year-old Nicole Sly, of Crooked River Ranch, and an eight-year-old girl were flown to St. Charles Bend with serious injuries. Her two other passengers, 34-year old Richard Mullins and a 10-year-old boy, were pronounced dead at the scene. 


Oregon State Police say a car driven by 19-year-old Mateo Smith, of Warm Springs, crossed the centerline and clipped one vehicle, then struck Sly’s car head-on. Smith and his 17-year-old passenger received non-life threatening injuries. No information was released on those in the third vehicle.
