Oregon State Police and emergency personnel responded to a two vehicle crash on Highway 101 near milepost 121, which is just north of the intersection of 101 and Immonen Road south of Lincoln City. Authorities say a Dodge Durango, driven by James Versteeg, 46 of Gleneden Beach, was northbound when it crossed-over into the southbound lane and collided with a Chevrolet Silverado driven by Lewis Ford, 41, of Lincoln City.
Versteeg and Ford suffered fatal injuries and both were pronounced deceased. Highway 101 was closed for several hours. Oregon State Police are trying to figure out why Versteeg’s car crossed over the center line.
