REEDSPORT, Ore. (AP) - One person has died and three others were injured in a head-on crash on Highway 101 about four miles south of Reedsport, Oregon.

Oregon State Police say a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer was traveling northbound on Highway 101 when it crossed over the centerline and into the path of a southbound 2000 Chevy Silverado. The vehicles collided head-on and came to rest in the roadway.

Forty-year-old Heather Walseth of Evans, Washington, died from her injuries. She had been a front center passenger in the Chevy. The driver of the other vehicle, 32-year-old Julie Bowen of Reedsport, and the other two people in the Chevy were also taken the hospital.

Both directions of Highway 101 were blocked for more than four hours after the Saturday afternoon accident.
