Head-on crash kills 92 year old Waldport man on 101 north of Florence.

Sunday morning OSP Troopers and emergency crews responded to a report of a two-vehicle, head-on collision on Highway 101, 14 miles north of Florence.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 2008 Honda CRV operated by Eugene Earl WEIGANT, age 92, of Waldport, was traveling northbound when it crossed the center line striking a 1994 Chevrolet Imperial Van operated by Tanner Benjamin DICKINSON, age 23, of Columbus, Ohio, head-on. Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage.

WEIGANT was transported by Western Lane Ambulance to Peace Harbor Hospital in Florence where he later succumbed to his injuries. DICKINSON was transported by Pac West Ambulance to Peace Harbor Hospital and treated and released for minor injuries.

One lane of Highway 101 was closed for approximately four hours while the investigation was conducted. OSP was assisted by the Central Coast Fire and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
