The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says a Toyota Corolla and a Chevy Malibu crashed on Applegate Trail Road near milepost 1.5 in the Cheshire area just after 6 p.m.
Junction City Fire and EMS extricated all four people from the vehicles. Everyone was wearing their seat belts.
Investigators believe the Corolla going south, driven by 27-year-old Kirsten Albright, of Junction City, crossed into the northbound lane while going around a curve and hit the Malibu, driven by 42-year-old Kevin Sheffield, of Junction City. Both drivers, along with Sheffield’s passengers, a 70-year-old male from Junction City and a 65-year-old female from Springfield, were taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend.
Police closed the road for about four hours.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash, but they do say fog in the area and speed may have been factors but alcohol does not at this time.
