PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Just two days before Christmas, three people have died in three separate vehicle crashes in the state.

Oregon State Police says a Warrenton man was killed Wednesday on Highway 30 near Clatskanie when a car crossed the center line and struck a semi-trailer. The car’s 55-year-old passenger Zai G. Yang died at the scene.

In Benton County, a man driving a minivan crossed the center line and collided with an SUV. The SUV driver, 54-year-old Arthur Earl Fuller, Jr. of Eugene, died in the crash. The minivan driver was critically injured.

And in Deschutes County, 74-year-old Karen I. Langeliers of Bend died after a head-on collision on Highway 20 just east of Sisters. Authorities say she lost control of her car on the icy road, veered into the eastbound lane and was struck by another car.
