LYONS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a 34-year-old Portland man and his passenger were killed in a crash on a snow-covered road southeast of Salem.

The agency says Joshua Lyons was driving a 2017 Nissan Armada when he lost traction while trying to pass on Highway 22E. The vehicle slid sideways and struck a Chevy Silverado that was pulling an enclosed trailer.

Lyons and his passenger - 47-year-old Timothy Hays of Silverton - died at the scene Sunday.

The Silverado driver and two of his passengers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries. His other passenger suffered serious injuries.

The westbound lane was closed for five hours during the investigation.
