- Associated Press - Saturday, February 1, 2014

SISTERS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say two men have been killed in a nearly head-on crash on state Highway 20 west of Sisters in central Oregon.

Lt. Steve Mitchell says a westbound Acura SUV driven by a 61-year-old man from Salem crossed into the eastbound lane Friday afternoon and collided with a Toyota pickup driven by a 42-year-old man from Newberg. Both drivers suffered fatal injuries.

A female passenger in the pickup was taken to a Bend hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The victims were not immediately identified pending notification of relatives.

The highway was closed for about three hours during the investigation.
