WELCHES, OR -- Highway 26 was closed in both directions, Friday morning, following a fatal crash in Welches, west of Mt. Hood. State Police responded to the area near milepost 48, just after 4 a.m.

 

Preliminary investigation shows an eastbound car crossed into the westbound lanes, for an unknown reason, crashing head-on into a semi truck hauling wood chips. The truck came to rest off the road in some trees and caught fire. Both drivers were killed; no one else was in either vehicle.
