CRESCENT, OR -- A Bend couple was killed in a crash in northern Klamath County that led to the closure of Highway 97 for several hours, Tuesday afternoon.

 

According to State Police, 56-year-old Marcia Myers was southbound when she pulled on to the shoulder near milepost 188, at about 2:15 p.m. She attempted a u-turn, but pulled in front of a semi-truck, driven by a California man. The truck hit Myers' Toyota Yaris on the driver's side, sending it off the northbound shoulder.

 

Marcia Myers and her passenger, 60-year-old Larry Myers were pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver was not hurt. Highway 97 was closed for about five hours.
