EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a teenager was killed in a two-vehicle collision near Cottage Grove.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1TkVcjZ ) that rescue crews had responded to the crash site on Highway 99 on Monday. They arrived to find 18-year-old Connor Fitch, of Cottage Grove, suffering from serious injuries. He was taken to a hospital and later died.

The other driver, 25-year-old Bryan Ross, of Eugene, was not injured.

Police say Fitch had been heading north on the highway in a Subaru wagon when he veered off the east shoulder and crossed into the southbound lane. Ross, who was driving a commercial van, then struck Fitch’s vehicle on the rear passenger side.
