On December 25, 2015 at about 10AM, OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a crash involving two vehicles on Highway 20 near milepost 77 (just east of Santiam Junction).

Preliminary information indicates a 2003 Chevy Tahoe was traveling eastbound on highway 20 when it lost control on the icy roadway. The Chevy crossed the centerline and struck a westbound 2005 Dodge Pickup nearly head-on.

One of the passing motorists, a doctor, stopped and provided medical attention to the injured passengers before medical personnel arrived. In all, six people were transported by ground ambulance to Saint Charles Bend for various ranges of injuries.

Highway 20 was closed for several hours while the investigation was conducted. The names of those involved are not currently available at the time of this release. More information will be released when it becomes available.
