PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a woman died early Monday in a fatal crash along Highway 34 west of Lebanon.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says it’s the fourth fatal traffic crash investigated by troopers during the Labor Day weekend. A total of five people have died in those crashes. The double fatal occurred Sunday when a motorcycle with two occupants hit the side of a pickup east of Glide.

Monday’s crash was reported shortly before 4 a.m. According to police, a Nissan Pathfinder was eastbound on Highway 34 when it crossed the center of the road, went into a ditch, returned back to the highway and rolled. The 27-year-old driver was ejected; she did not have any passengers.

Since 1970, Oregon has averaged seven fatalities during Labor Day weekends. The deadliest was in 1978, when 17 people lost their lives.
